Well worth a visit if just to view the stained glass windows. Wander up the stairs at the back to get a good look at the big windows. There is also a very nice pipe organ which we were lucky enough to hear when we...More

I enjoy the subdued ambiance of this church. Adorned with retired Colours from local infantry regiments, it is a special place.

A most remarkable structure; apparently Winston Churchill, as a young man, helped in the construction! His initials are about 20 foot above the main entrance on the wall to your left as you face the building! A wonderful organ that I look forward to playing...More

Very pretty stained glass. Beautiful building. Helpful lady as we entered gave us a map and chatted to us about the place. You can light a candle and make a donation.

This cathedral isn’t as old as the cathedrals in europe, built in 1929, but t’s very beautiful. An interesting side note, the rock was quarried from Butchart Gardens.

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.
