How to find us

Accessibility

St Davids Cathedral welcomes all visitors.

Please be aware that the cathedral sits within a valley. Visiting the cathedral from St Davids city centre involves descending/ascending relatively steep slopes. Flat access is available when using the Merrivale car park to the west of the cathedral (see map above).

Existing accessibility provisions include:

  • A wheelchair available for general use within the cathedral, located in the South Porch.
  • A toilet suitable for disabled visitors, located in the South Cloister.
  • A loop system in the Nave and the Quire.
  • Disabled parking spaces (please contact us if you require parking assistance).

We would be very happy to discuss any further accessibility requirements - please contact the Deanery Office on 01437 720202 or email info@stdavidscathedral.org.uk.
