About this Website
This is the official website for Rochester Cathedral. The Cathedral is the home of the Bishop's throne (or Cathedra), but the Bishop has responsibility for the whole of the Diocese of Rochester, not just the Cathedral. The Diocese has its own website here. We are a member of the Church of England.
Much of the photography on this website (including all the feature photography in the Panoramic Tour) is © by David Robinson. The Panoramic Images were created by Dan Soper. Other photographs in the website are by Robbie Munn, Geoff Matthews, Lynne Egide and Liz Simmons.
The recent developments of this website have been funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund.
