Sheffield Cathedral

Peruse the intriguing military ornaments in the chapel and gaze up at the impressive lantern tower of this historic and architecturally intriguing church.

With a blend of Gothic and modern architecture, Sheffield Cathedral is one of the city’s oldest and most significant buildings. A lantern tower rises high above the 13th-century church. Capture photos of the impressive structure from the quiet setting of its adjacent square.

Enter the cathedral’s nave and check out at the intriguing patterns on the ceiling. The church’s eastern wall is its oldest part and dates back to the 1200s. See the medieval chancel and 15th-century sanctuary. These features contrast with the cathedral’s modern additions, which include a beautiful stained-glass window with an abstract design. Marvel at the intricate features of the lantern tower’s interior. In the evening, the stunning lantern tower glows bright yellow. Admire the various works of art on the walls. The cathedral also occasionally hosts temporary exhibitions.

The St. George Chapel is dedicated to the York and Lancaster Regiment of the Navy. Note the various flags, bayonets and swords that decorate this military-themed chapel. Go to the Chapel of the Holy Spirit to see ornate carvings of roses, lilies and sunflowers.

Learn about the 9th-century Sheffield Cross that is believed to have stood on this site before the current church.

Purchase souvenirs, books and stationery with a religious theme in the church shop. Relax in the café with a drink and a piece of cake.

Sheffield Cathedral is in the center of the city. Take the tram to the cathedral’s stop or walk 10 minutes from Sheffield Train Station. Nearby attractions include the Sheffield Town Hall, Peace Gardens and Graves Gallery.
