Lancaster Cathedral, also known as The Cathedral Church of St Peter and Saint Peter's Cathedral, is in St Peter's Road, Lancaster, Lancashire, England. It was a Roman Catholic parish church until 1924, when it was elevated to the status of a cathedral. It started as a mission church in 1798, and the present church was built on a different site in 1857–59. It was designed by E. G. Paley in the Gothic Revival style. In 1901 a baptistry was added by Austin and Paley, and the east end was reordered in 1995 by Francis Roberts. The cathedral is in active use, arranging services, concerts and other events, and is open to visitors. The building is recorded in the National Heritage List for England as a designated Grade II* listed building.

  • A pleasant functional cathedral, some decent stained glass, worth popping in for half an hour. Nice place to pray and meet with God in Lancaster. 
  • We went on a Sunday at Church and enjoyed the people. The atmosphere is familiar and the father very well. The Cathedral on the outside is impressive and you can see an exhibition there about the origin of the Catholic Church.
