St. Giles Cathedral

The iconic City Church of Edinburgh, known as St. Giles Cathedral, invites visitors to learn about its storied history through scholar-lead guided tours. Originally dedicated to the mission of the Parish Church in 1243, this world-renowned structure was completed when officially named after Saint Giles. Visitors can attend one of five services on Sunday along with other worship events throughout the week, including Holy Communion at St. Giles Cathedral, which is celebrated and dispersed several times per week. Music also plays a large part in St. Giles' traditionally breathtaking services-the cathedral's newest organ, built in 1992, moans with transcendental power, one of the finest of its kind in all of Europe.

  • Explore the Cathedral and Thistle Chapel and hear firsthand accounts from local volunteers chronicling the history of this iconic church in Edinburgh.
  • Shop for souvenirs at the Cathedral Shop, which features guidebooks, gifts, and traditional music from the church.
  • Enjoy some of Edinburgh's tastiest home-baked goods at the cafes directly surrounding the cathedral once your tour through history is complete.

St. Giles Cathedral is part of the historic Old Town located along the Royal Mile, which also includes along its thoroughfare the world-famous Edinburgh Castle, along with other local landmarks. Visitors travelling by rail will find St. Giles Cathedral located within a short walking distance from Waverly Station. Several buses, along with the convenient hop-on/hop-off tours, also provide transit to and around St. Giles. All underground ghost tours in Edinburgh begin at this cathedral, making it a perfect place to start an extended exploration of Edinburgh. Additionally, there is plenty of available lodging available near this world-class destination at a variety of prices.
