The Gift Shop at Chester Cathedral

The Gift Shop at Chester Cathedral reopened in the summer of 2012 following a major refurbishment and restocking.  Besides offering a wide range of Christian books and products, The Gift Shop at Chester Cathedral also provides a full range of souvenirs, gifts, CD’s and jewellery together with an extensive selection of cards for all occasions.  We stock a number of items unique to Chester Cathedral and new ranges are regularly introduced.  

For many local residence The Gift Shop at Chester Cathedral has become their regular destination for quality presents for all the family.  Be it a birthday, christening, anniversary, wedding, ordination, holiday gift or just something to inspire your thinking – we have gifts to suite most tastes and every purse!  

Our knowledgeable and friendly staff will do everything they can to assist you when visiting in person or ordering products over the phone.   If we do not have what you are looking we are happy to explore ordering selected products and arrange delivery if that would help.   

Why not come and see for yourself!  Experience first-hand one of Chester’s increasingly ‘must see’ retailers.  You can access the shop without having to enter the Cathedral, and whilst you are here you can enjoy a selection of delicious meals and snacks in our Refectory or a few moments of quiet reflection in the magnificent Cathedral and gardens. 

 Opening hours: Monday – Saturday 9.30 am – 5.00 pm, Sunday 11.00 am – 4.00 pm
