Worcester Cathedral under usual circumstances is open 365 days of the year, 7.30am to 6.00pm, and is free to enter.
Every day, Monday to Saturday, access to the east end of the Cathedral and the Crypt begins to be restricted shortly before 5pm as we prepare for our daily service of Choral Evensong (or Evening Prayer) at 5.30pm. Visitors in the Nave are asked to be quiet while the service is in progress.
Every Sunday we hold our main Sung Eucharist at 10.30am; all are welcome to attend, but the Cathedral does not open for sightseeing until 12 noon after the service has finished. The Cloisters remain open to visitors, and our Cloister Café begins serving at 10.00am. (At some points in the year – usually in March, August and December – our Sunday morning Eucharist takes place in the Quire, and it is possible to visit the Nave while it takes place.)
Every Sunday access to the east end of the Cathedral and the Crypt begins to be restricted shortly before 3.30pm as we prepare for the service of Choral Evensong at 4pm. These areas will reopen after 5pm when the service has finished. Visitors in the Nave are asked to be quiet while the service is in progress.
