Welcome to Lincoln Cathedral
Lincoln Cathedral stands as a beacon over the city of Lincoln. As a holy place built to the glory of God, it is home to a daily rhythm of prayer and worship for the people of the city and diocese of Lincoln. We also welcome visitors and pilgrims to experience something of the special quality that has drawn people to come through its doors over the centuries, and host a series of events that contribute to the cultural and social life of the city and county. We hope that you will find something that touches you as you visit this website, and look forward to welcoming you.
