Nearly just walked on by but convinced the other half to go in as even from the outside the stained glass was telling me it would be worth a visit. It's awe inspiring how extravagant churches are. The stained glass, the wood work, the masonry and the organ were amazing. The museum was closed but would be worth a look... More

As we entered, the cool and quiet atmosphere was refreshing. I love stained glass windows and found the one opposite the altar was different in it's colour with pinks and soft blues, although Many others told part of the biblical narrative or some of the history. Whilst we were the organ was being played. We especially enjoyed the Stations of... More

This is such a well known church, right in the middle of Hobart. The bells are delightful and the stone masonry quite beautiful.

Sunday in Hobart so off to Church to find St David's Cathedral welcoming. The newly ordained lady vicar chatted with us and the Dean informed us it was 200 years since the church was built. His sermon was the original sermon preached at that time full of fire and brimstone. The stained glass windows are impressive especially the one of... More

As visitors from the UK we enjoyed the Christmas morning service and were made to feel very welcome. The Nativity stained glass window is exceptional

I had to convince hubby to go in ('seen enough churches in my life'). But he ended up looking at things longer than me! The highlight was a little museum in the side with prices of churches and abbeys from around the world, I think the oldest was 11th century. Fascinating artefacts.

We visited St David's Cathedral during the week and learned of its history. We attended a morning service on the Sunday - great sermon - good liturgy - great atmosphere and singing - it was great to see a capital city cathedral having a personal touch.

And it is now beside St Stephen's Cathedral in Elizabeth Street. It is no longer the cathedral of the archdiocese of Brisbane, but well worth a visit even by those who know nothing of AWB Pugin. It is now usually known as Pugin's Chapel, or the old St Stephen's, and was built in 1850. The Anglican cathedral in Hobart owes... More

You are quite correct, St. David's is a Bodleigh. We are not sure where the idea that it is a Pugin building has come from apart from a couple of reviews which we have asked people to correct. More
