Accessibility

Bradford Cathedral welcomes all visitors. We are aware that some people may need extra help and advice to attend a service or visit us. We ask anyone who needs or wants help to contact us in advance and we will do all that we can to help.

 

Bradford Cathedral and its grounds

Parts of the Cathedral and its ground were built in medieval times so some of the ground is uneven. There is flat access into the Cathedral from the Stott Hill entrance and through the North Door, and there are accessibility ramps on the north side of the Cathedral to allow access to the East End of the building. 

At certain points in the day, some areas of the Cathedral may be darker and there may an impact on those with visual impairments. If you require any assistance during these times, please speak to a member of our team who will be happy to help, or you can contact the office on 01274 77 77 20 or by e-mail on info@bradfordcathedral.org

 

Facilities

Disabled toilets are available at Bradford Cathedral, to be found ahead of you as you enter the building through the North Door, next to the Cathedral shop.

 

Hearing Loop

We operate a hearing loop at the Cathedral, which is available during any service or event. All you need to do is turn your hearing aid to the T position.

The hearing loop covers the nave and transepts, the West End, St. Aidan's Chapel and the Chapter House, but is unavailable in the Chancel, Sanctuary or Lady Chapel.

If you require any assistance or have any issues with the hearing loop whilst visiting Bradford Cathedral for an event or service, please speak to a member of the team.

 

Disabled Parking

Please see above for details of our parking. We may be able to offer parking in the close for those with accessibility issues, but we ask if you contact the Cathedral office ahead of your visit to reserve a space.

 

Assistance Dogs

Assistance dogs are very welcome in the Cathedral.
