Do not expect something old historical cathedral, it is a modern style cathedral, it is not bad but also not really special. A bit bland from the appearance with light pink colour facade, as well as the wall inside, should use more attractive colours probably....More

A modern Anglican cathedral with interesting Gallipoli and other memorials. We heard a choir practising The Messiah and acoustics sounded excellent.

Whenever we travel in foreign countries, we love to visit churches, cathedrals or other houses of worship, so having a couple hours free time before boarding our ship allowed us to visit this cathedral and its predecessor nearby. The exterior and interior are very sleek...More

This cathedral is right next to the Beehive so I visited since I had some time before the tour. This cathedral is not impressive, but not bad.

Nothing special on this Cathedral, well maintained but very modern. Compared to the ‘old’ St Pauls church massive difference between old and modern.

Not attractive from the outside but better than expected inside. Definitely worth some time to wander around and take some photos.

Wonderful wooden structure that withstood the earthquake of 2016. The US Marine Corps were barracked just up the coast so they were frequent visitors during WW II. THEY GIFTED their colors and a 48 Stars US Flag

It was modern externally and internally and hence lacked some of the character of cathedrals around the world but this was good to visit and interesting. Worth a look.

As cathedrals go St Pauls Wellington is not the prettiest. However it has two main claims to fame that are unique. It is the only cathedral that was built and completed within the reign of a living monarch (Queen Elizabeth 2) and in addition it...More

Again another unique design with its own appeal. Whilst it looms large and can be described as a little plain, it is an impressive structure. The Beehive and old St Paul’s are close by . Thanks for the vote if you found this review helpful.
