The Cathedral Church of St Nicholas
St Nicholas Cathedral; the Mother Church of the Diocese of Newcastle which stretches from the Tyne to the Tweed.
For over 900 years St Nicholas has been the parish church of Newcastle but when in 1882 the new Diocese was founded it also became Englands most northerly cathedral. One of Englands smaller cathedrals, we are nevertheless proud of our historic building which bears eloquent testimony to the part played by the church in the life of the people of Newcastle and the North East over many generations. The Lantern Cafe in the Cathedral Hall is open from 8am to 3pm Monday to Friday (4pm from Easter to September). It serves a variety of fresh home cooked meals and snacks as well as home baked cakes and treats. Our in house catering team will also provide, on request, catering for meetings, visiting groups and other other special events. Menus range from simple sandwich platters, afternoon tea, through to full sit down meals.
