The St Magnus Centre was added to the original Cathedral church hall to provide both the congregation and local community with extra facilities. This was completed in 2001 to award-winning standards.

The Centre has many uses, the main daily function being the main visitor centre for St Magnus cathedral where a 15 minute film on the history of St Magnus and the Cathedral is shown throughout the summer months (April-September).

As well as a souvenir/gift shop, we provide a self-service cafe for light refreshments and free WiFi connection for customers.

The Centre also provides meeting rooms and Hall facilities for a wide range of organizations both local and from all around the UK . We take pride in the high standard of the building and equipment we provide to ensure that any event from the smallest meeting to the larger more corporate multi-day events meet all of our customers needs.

Add to that our customer parking and outstanding disabled facilities, it is not surprising that many have commented on the St Magnus Centre being one of the "best-kept secrets" in Kirkwall.
