A church with a history which is second to none. So much character and nostalgia within the building , it makes you feel like you have gone back in time. A must visit for any visitors to Grahamstown.

The beautiful architecture, stained-glass windows and tranquillity is beautiful. Spend a bit of quiet time inside, away from the hustle and bustle of the streets and markets outside.

What a peaceful and spiritual place. We attended a fabulous service last Sunday morning. The cathedral was gentle and lovely. The service was elegant and beautiful. The cathedral is full of glorious stained glass and is a lovely place to visit

Pretty church, beautiful inside. Centre of town and an identifying feature of Grahamston. Wouldn't come just for this though :)

An interesting insight into the Christian faith in relation to South African history and particularly British settler history. Best experienced with a knowledgeable guide. Despite the ancient human history of Southern Africa (anecdotal myth supplemented by modern scientific study), European visitors need to appreciate that...More
