Welcome to Leicester Cathedral
Leicester Cathedral is at the physical heart of our city and county. Our church, built on the site of a Roman temple and dedicated to St Martin of Tours, has been embedded in the public, economic, cultural and religious life of this community since medieval times. Since 1927, as the seat of the Bishop of Leicester, we now gather people together for worship, celebration, lament, debate and service of the poor and vulnerable.
We offer hospitality to the wider church, the communities of faith that make up our multicultural society and those who come as visitors to the East Midlands, especially in search of the story of King Richard III.
We are open for worship and visiting most days – please do check the office if you are traveling a long distance in case there is a major event taking place.
I invite you to come, see and join with us in this adventure.
The Very Revd David Monteith, Dean of Leicester
