Create an itinerary including Catholic Cathedral of St John the Baptist
After nearly a century as the parish church of the Catholic community in Norwich it became the mother church of the new diocese of East Anglia in 1976.

It now takes its place with its ‘elder sister’, the Anglican cathedral which is located in the centre of the city. Norwich is one of the few English cities to have two cathedrals and, over the last 30 years, we have grown closer in a spiritual and practical partnership.

As well as being a beautiful building St John’s is a place of prayer that is open every day to all who come in search of peace and tranquillity. It is also the home of a large parish community.

  • 2nd largest Catholic cathedral in the UK, a short walk from the city center...there are two cathedrals in Norwich. Beautiful stained glass and stone work. Well worth a visit.

  • The Roman Catholic cathedral of the city of Norwich, Norfolk, built in the 1800s with Victoria Gothic style. Located slight off the city centre and definitely walkable from the Norwich market. A really majestic church building and very well kept inside and out. There is a small exhibition display near the cafe about the church and how the glass windows are made. Worth a visit for sure.
  • My family have been parishioners here in st. John cathedral since we came to England. 20 years... our journey through our faith have always been growing. Praised God and God bless you all 😍
