Blackburn Cathedral is one of England’s newest Cathedrals, yet it is one of the country’s oldest places of Christian worship. For many centuries, this has been the Parish Church of Blackburn dedicated to St. Mary the Virgin. It continues as a place of prayer and worship and is at the centre of the Diocese which takes in almost the whole of Lancashire. Visit this historic site and find out about the multi-million pound transformation of Cathedral Quarter which will bring new shops, a hotel, a festival plaza and gardens to the town along with the first clergy residential quarters to be built in the UK for over 600 years.

Climb the steps of the historic bell tower at 12 noon. Take a guided tour of the Cathedral, suitable for all ages at 10am and 11.30am.
