Exploring the Cathedral
When it comes to touring Grace Cathedral, you have options.
You can take the Grace Cathedral Grand Tour, which includes many areas not typically seen by visitors such as the interior of the Chapel of Grace, the Vestry where we keep our collection of vestments, the Gallery with sweeping views of the nave, and a walk up the 94 stairs to the top of the South Tower for a stunning view of the San Francisco skyline. The tour lasts 90 minutes and is intended for ages 10 & up. Tours are offered select days at 10:00 am and can be booked by emailing Head Verger Charles Shipley or calling 415-749-6316. Tickets are $25 per person.
Our dedicated docents are also available to lead guided walks around the Cathedral, pointing out features, giving information and answering questions.
Docents are usually available Mondays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 1-3 pm, Saturdays from 11:30-1:30 pm and Sundays after the 11 am service.
To check a specific date, view the docent calendar.

Closure of Peet’s Coffee Shop
The Peet’s Coffee Kiosk on the lower level of the cathedral will no longer operate after Wednesday, February 28 because it has not been financially viable. We hope that sometime in the future we will be able to provide a hospitality center that can support our mission, ministries and the community.
