Owner description: Ripon Cathedral traces its history back to its foundation by St Wilfrid in 672AD. The Anglo-Saxon crypt of St Wilfrid's church remains and is open to visitors. Choral evensong takes place Tuesday to Friday at 6pm and Sundays at 5.30pm. Details of all services may be found on our website. We are open to visitors daily throughout the year and entry is free, though we rely on generous donations to continue this practice. Most of the building is wheelchair accessible with the exception of the Library and the Anglo-Saxon crypt. There is a touch-screen computer interpretation of the crypt at ground level for those unable to access it.
Useful Information: Wheelchair access

This cathedral is well worth seeing. I've been here a couple times and it really is something. The architecture and the history is quite impressive. The crypt is a must do. It is free to get in, there is a fee paying car park at the Sainsbury's and there is a cut through that leads to the cathedral.

York Minster gets all the attention.

This cathedral outclasses York every time. avoid the queues in York and visit this one instead

You could just stroll around and out in 15 minutes but stay a bit longer and look. A lot of love has gone in to this cathedral and it shows in the detail and the way that it is presented to you. Surprised not to find a military chapel area?

Not only is Ripon Cathedral beautiful, visitors are given such warm welcome by the staff and volunteers who are friendly and very knowledgeable. We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and will certainly return. There are many special events too which we are looking forward to.

As always, a beautiful old Cathedral with plenty to see and read about. A visit down to the crypt is a must. We'll stocked gift shop with loads to choose from and lovely staff.
