STOP PRESS December 2017: the new CD Fantasy on Carlisle is now available in the shop at £11.99 a copy.  If you like a copy sent by post please e-mail Wendy Murrell (p&p £3.50).

Located just inside the entrance to the Cathedral, the Gift Shop stocks a wide range of items to suit all ages, tastes, and budgets, many of which are locally made and Fair Trade. You will find textiles, jewellery, prints, hand-turned wood ware, plus speciality foods, an extensive range of cards for all occasions, and our exclusive range of fine English bone china items, decorated with the rich blue design of the cathedral’s barrel-vaulted ceiling.

We are open Monday to Saturday, from 10am - 4pm October until Easter, and until 4.30pm during the summer period. The shop is staffed entirely by a team of volunteers; and all profits generated contribute to the upkeep of the Cathedral. We hope you enjoy your visit, and we welcome feedback from customers to help us improve the range of goods and service we offer.

Volunteers needed!

We are looking for volunteers to join our shop team. If you can spare a few hours a week please contact Wendy Murrell  -
