Grahamstown see,s to be 'out of the way.' However, i thin the town is seriously under-estimated. People are friendly, the historic sites are interesting, a wide range of shops and the pubs were very entertaining. We also attended a performance by a choral choir - they were extremely good. We had previously seen the Sweto choir and this was as good. We were volunteers at Shamwari (another very good experience) and visited Grahamstown three times. We would say 'not to be missed.'

Nice view

It is a beautiful view for the visitor to see the cathedral in the central square. The building itself has nothing special, however it is the most interesting of the city.

This Cathedral is next to the old village green which is now a concreted African market.

Inside you are transported to another world of tranquility.

If in Grahamstown this is a must visit building.

Such a feeling of wholeness and tranquility...

Visiting the Cathedral really was a spiritual experience to me. The officials were young adults who had a passion for sharing the beauty of the facility with tourists.

An absolutely beautiful church. Stained glass windows, wooden pews, bibles and hymn books available should you wish to spend some quality time reflecting on life in general. One of the top tourist spots in Grahamstown. A must see.

Definitely worth a visit. It's quite simple in it's style but that's part of it's charm. The information about the history of the Cathedral is very interesting. We were lucky enough to witness the induction of 7 new priests while we were there.

Easily accessible, just be careful as once you enter Grahamstown the roads are full of potholes. Can be spotted without need of GPS due to size.
