The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas is a Church of England cathedral in Newcastle upon Tyne.
The Cathedral Church of St. Nicholas is one of the most beautiful and historic buildings in Newcastle. The spire has dominated Newcastle’s skyline and served as a prominent landmark and navigation point for ships in the River Tyne for over 500 years.
The cathedral is named after St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors and boats.
Most of the cathedral’s features date from the 14th and 15th centuries, although the earliest surviving fragment is Norman.
You are warmly invited to visit the Cathedral – whether you wish to join in for worship, or are seeking some space for peace and quiet, or are interested in exploring the Cathedral’s treasures of monuments, ledger stones (one of the largest collections in Western Europe) and stained glass.
The Cathedral is open Sunday to Friday from 7.30am until 6.30pm, and on Saturdays and Bank Holidays from 8.30am until 4.00pm.
There is no charge for entry – although donations are requested.
Times of daily services are available on their website: http://stnicholascathedral.co.uk/events-and-services/. Occasionally we are closed for special events. This information can also be found on our website.
The Cathedral has disabled access and is a registered Safe Place.
As you enter the Cathedral through one of the doors under the Lantern Tower you will see the Welcome Desk. On this desk are various leaflets and booklets about the Cathedral, about events taking place here and about the Christian faith. These include a free Welcome leaflet which includes a suggested route to explore the Cathedral and some of its treasures.
The Cathedral’s Lantern Café is open from 8.30am to 3.30pm Monday to Friday and serves lunches, light bites, home-made cakes, teas and coffees.
