The National Cathedral

The National Cathedral is open to people of all faiths to come and worship. The Cathedral’s construction began in 1907.  The first stone laid was brought from a field in Bethlehem. It has been a point of unity in our nation’s time of difficulty and mourning.  The Cathedral’s architecture is stunning. The stained glass windows, and highlights such as the moon stone make it a site worth seeing.

The National Cathedral is open to the public Monday – Sunday with hours as follows: Monday – Friday 10am – 5:30pm, Saturday 10am-4:30pm, Sunday 10am -4pm. The suggested donation for admission to the cathedral is $5 per person. Tours are given at 30 minute intervals at fixed times seven days a week. Please visit the website for additional information.

The cathedral is accessible by the N2, N3, N4, N6 and 96 metro bus routes all servicing the Dupont/Kalorama neighborhoods. Please visit wmata for additional travel information.

Happy site seeing! Alexis, Innkeeper
