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. The slope is less steep from the Merrivale car park to the west of the cathedral (see map above), but if you have a severe mobility disability, you can either call us to see if we have any parking available on site or be dropped off at the gates by the South Porch of the Cathedral.

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.

Cathedral Shops

There are two options for gifts and souvenirs available at the cathedral.

  • The Cathedral Bookshop at the west end of the nave stocks a wide range of both Christian and general books, music and gifts. 
  • The Domus Giftshop specialising in Welsh and Celtic crafts and books is located adjacent to the cathedral, across the river.
