Beautiful Cathedral with fabulous history. From Strongbow being buried here to the return of Lawence’s heart. The crypt is hauntingly beautiful displaying historical artifacts including silverware. Tours are definitely fabulous which included the belltower. Highly recommended.

Where Christchurch Cathedral does shine, is in its Crypt. They have several treasures...More
