Great spot for photo shooting, gorgeous interior with great history, met a friendly staff there, who told us a bit about the interesting facts about the place. Man, the design, the feeling, the colour... I can easily spend hours in this beautiful building.

Victoria's historic Anglican cathedral, where members of the Royal Family have attended, such as Prince Charles and Camilla. One of the best venues for classical concerts with great acoutstics and home of a world class pipe organ. Do not miss any advertised organ or choral...More

This gorgeous cathedral is not advertised in Victoria, but is open daily for prayer and meditation. Flying buttresses, beautiful beams, and gorgeous stained glass. We stumbled upon it by accident, and so happy we did.

A beautiful church. Perhaps not a lot different than many others, but interesting nonetheless. I would love to be there at a time that the beautiful organ is being played.

The architecture inside and out is spectacular! Many beautiful stained glass windows to enjoy and a quiet retreat when you need it. They are always open to the public. A great place for tourists to enjoy. I had the privilege of visiting the Bell Tower...More

This is a lovely cathedral, much like European ones I’ve frequented. It was near my hotel but I actually found it by bus. I know the Church of Christ in England. The stained glass and architecture are magnificent. No entry fee.

I have been through some beautiful cathedrals in Europe so I was not expecting too much, but was pleasantly surprised. Lovely architecture, pipe organ and stained windows. Visiting on a Sunday was perfect.

We make it a point to visit different churches when we travel. Sunday morning service at Christ church was a wonderful experience. Beautiful choir, magnificent organ and a thoughtful sermon. A wonderful way to rest and reflect.

Glorious Stain Glass windows as you enter the Nave - it literally took my breath away. There is a self-guide tour pamphlet that you can take for free from the Stewart on duty. I highly suggest that you take one. Each number on the self...More

I agree that it is better to enjoy the church by viewing it without looking across the way yet the inside has not changed. While the tent city seems abhorrent, it is a statement of how the wealth of a nation is in the hands... More

There is no cost for admission and you can donate if you wish. It is heated and is open I think from around 0830 to 1800 at night so most of the day(may need to check times for closing).

There is no admission rate. There are tours of the bell tower...really worthwhile. You can just wander in and around the cathedral any day....I am not sure of the exact hours, sorry.
