“This has been a long time coming. Having seen many a pandemic before, it’s almost as if the cathedral has been waiting patiently. Gloucester Cathedral is meant to be open 365 days a year and now we can return to our famous welcome for all. The building is huge and safe so now is the time, especially for local people, to return to this special place where we have been praying for you throughout the last year of this crisis. This is Your Cathedral – Welcome Home!”
