• Welcome to the Bradford Cathedral website. We are on the east side of Westfield's new Broadway Bradford shopping centre, just a few minutes walk from both of Bradford’s stations. The Cathedral is the oldest building in the City but it also has a wonderful 20th century extension. Ancient and modern. Why not visit us and discover Bradford’s ‘hidden gem’ and spend a few quiet moments in reflection and prayer?
    The Very Reverend Jerry Lepine
    Dean of Bradford
    An eventful year in the life of the Cathedral and City

    The Cathedral has three major projects starting this year whilst works continue on Cathedral Halls (The Brathay Trust) and Clergy House (Bradford Council). The Council’s Public Realm works (linked to Westfield’s new Broadway Shopping Centre) also see major improvements to the pavements and roads on Stott Hill and Church Bank.   More ...

    Any project is bound to cause some disruption at some point. Whilst the building and grounds will remain open for the duration, there will be times when vehicle access may be prevented and enjoyment of the peace and beauty of the site will be marred by noise and scaffolding. We therefore ask for your gracious forbearance at this time.
