About the Cathedral

Set on a spectacular Pembrokeshire peninsula jutting out into the Atlantic upon the site of an earlier sixth-century monastery built by St David, the patron saint of Wales, St Davids Cathedral has been a site of pilgrimage and worship for more than 800 years. Today this splendid building erected to the glory of God remains a vibrant, living church offering a place of peace for prayer and devotion.

St David is often remembered for teaching his followers
‘Be joyful, keep the faith, and do the little things …’

In this Cathedral we aim to be joyful in expressing the good news of Jesus Christ to our hundreds of thousands of visitors and pilgrims. We strive to keep the faith passed on through the centuries, in our daily prayer and worship. And we hope that in the little things we do here day by day we will love and honour St David’s God and ours.

Around 300,000 people come every year, from all around Wales and the wider world. Many find themselves touched by the deep spiritual atmosphere within and beyond the Cathedral. Our hope is that as we ‘Welcome Visitors as Pilgrims’ we will encourage everyone, of every faith and none, to ponder their own pilgrim journey through life, and perhaps feel inspired to take the next step onwards.
