Good To Go


For over 1,000 years people have gathered in this holy place to offer their prayers and praise. A historic gem is located in the heart of the city.

Not only is the Cathedral one of the UK’s most magnificent churches, it also has the tallest spire in Yorkshire – stretching up some 247ft (even higher than York Minster) it dominates our city’s skyline.

As impressive as it is on the outside, Wakefield Cathedral (or the Cathedral Church of All Saints) also reveals an awe-inspiring interior. Inside a colossal space is filled with historic artifacts. It also boasts the world’s most complete collection of stained glass by the renowned designer Charles Kempe.

An oasis in the bustling city, Wakefield Cathedral offers a space of peace and tranquillity. It also hosts a programme of events and concerts throughout the year.
