‘I visited this most magnificent cathedral during a visit to Edinburgh shortly before Christmas. I was spellbound by the sense of its history, it’s stained glass windows and beautiful vaulted ceilings. I would highly recommend a visit.’
– St Giles’ Cathedral Tripadvisor Review
A Bite To Eat
After a rooftop tour of the ancient Cathedral, you can enjoy a delicious bite to eat in St Giles’ Cathedral Café. Locally sourced produce, freshly prepared dishes and award-winning speciality coffees make a trip to the Cathedral Café well worth a visit. Once you have toured the Cathedral and sampled the café’s wares, all that’s left is to pick up a few souvenirs at the Cathedral Shop.
Visiting The Cathedral
With the exception of very special days of worship, St Giles’ Cathedral is open throughout the year. While entry into the Cathedral is free, anyone visiting the Cathedral is invited to make a small donation of £3. Volunteer guides are available to welcome Cathedral visitors and guide you through the historic building, and permits for photography are available on request.
