Belfast Cathedral is the church of Saint Anne. The Cathedral seeks to maintain an Anglican and Irish ethos and identity in its daily worship, whilst providing a hospitable space for civic, community and inter-church services. A living partnership is maintained with St Peter's Roman Catholic Cathedral in the city.
The building itself is Romanesque, giving it a lofty grandeur associated with that style; semi-circular arches and massive pillars, vast and high single windows, and possessing an uncluttered spaciousness. The Cathedral contains mosaics designed by Sir Charles Nicholson, as well as sculptures by Rosamund Praegar and Maurice Harding. The 40 metre stainless steel Spire of Hope was added in 2007 and is illuminated at night.
Visitors to Belfast Cathedral can enjoy an enhanced experience, with a guidebook and optional audio tour.
The audio guide takes you on your own personal tour of Belfast's magnificent Cathedral. Find out how the cathedral's story is intertwined with that of its home city, discover the rich historic artefacts and be introduced to the people who helped shape this sacred place.
