Cathedral at Heights - The adventure starts here
Coming to Chester Cathedral at the end of 2013!
Chester Cathedral is one of Chester’s major tourist attractions and within the city centre it is probably the most important and visited tourist attraction. In a city steeped in heritage, the Cathedral is the embodiment of what is attractive about the city.
The Cathedral is ingrained with, and mirrors the story of the city itself, which is one of continual development and change. There are links to some of the most important people and events in the country's history; it is an essential part of the medieval and modern history of Chester and forms a key part of the historic fabric of the city centre.
Through the Cathedral at Heights project the Cathedral’s aim is to enhance a visit providing an experience of the Cathedral which adds a new dimension by allowing visitors to see the interior of the walls as well as the exterior views of the city and beyond. Visitors will be able to discover a hidden world for themselves and appreciate that there is a great deal more to this great mediaeval building.
Chester Cathedral has received the kind financial support of Cheshire West and Chester Council and through this partnership plan on delivering this exciting tourist attraction towards the end of 2013.
Chester Cathedral has recently appointed Turner and Townsend to project manage the delivery of the project and the team is working hard to ensure visitors will experience a view of Chester and the Cathedral rarely seen.

There are many ways to support the Cathedral from donations through to buying a gift or simply enjoying a coffee in the Refectory. We welcome your support in whatever form it takes.
The Refectory, built in the 13th century, was the dining hall for the 40 monks who belonged to the community at the time. The Refectory is open from 9:30 - 4:30 and a delicious lunch menu, fabulous cakes and free Wi-Fi!
