‘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. Serving locally sourced produce, freshly prepared dishes and award-winning speciality coffees. 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, visitors are invited to make a small donation of £3. Volunteer guides are available to welcome and guide you through the historic building, and permits for photography are available on request.
