St Nicholas Cathedral

St Nicholas is the Cathedral for the Church of England Diocese of Newcastle and an impressive building in the heart of the city

Steeped in history, the impressive cathedral has been on this site for over 900 years. Home of daily prayer and worship, St Nicholas Cathedral is a much needed place of quiet serenity set amid the busy-ness of a vibrant city. From the Middle Ages to the present day, the cathedral is a place where the stories of local people can be found and its very stones, stained glass and monuments speak of the city’s heritage.

The cathedral is named after St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors and boats. This may reflect the cathedral’s position on the northern heights above the River Tyne.
