Ripon Cathedral is one of the oldest and most beautiful Cathedrals in Britain. The Cathedral crypt forms the remains of the original church founded by  St Wilfrid and dedicated in AD 672. The Cathedral is witness to over 1,300 years of continuous worship.

The centuries have seen the creation of a unique place of worship and splendour. Maintaining this rich heritage takes dedication and care.



The Friends of Ripon Cathedral provides a focus for those who love this magnificent building to help maintain and enhance it as well as to enjoy one another’s company through a programme of social, cultural and religious activities.

Friends recognise the need to preserve and enhance the Cathedral for future generations.

You too can become a part of the ongoing story of our Cathedral, a place of peace, beauty and spirituality.
