Christ Church Cathedral, Victoria

4.6
At the very heart of Vancouver, Christ Church Cathedral attracts tourists both for its architecture and its moving religious services. A small stone cathedral dwarfed by the surrounding scyscrapers, the old landmark offers a quiet getaway in the middle of the city. As you enter the cathedral, you'll feel overwhelmed by a sense of peace. Admire the intricate architecture and design of the interior, reflected in the marble walls and pillars. Marvel at the scenes depicted in stained glass as you inspect the cathedral, which also serves as a space for theatrical events and concerts.

  • The worship here is lovely--very inviting and inclusive. We arrived while on vacation and were warmly welcomed. Even though their service is different from what we are used to at home, we were helped with taking communion and participating in the service they had. The choir was astoundingly good! The artwork and architecture similarly so. After the church service, it was a little difficult navigating where the coffee & tea social time was taking place, but once again we were helped out.
  • I can only speak to the grounds and the bells. The sound of the bells brought us over to the church on a meandering Sunday morning walk. The church itself is beautiful from the outside, and the grounds around were absolutely lovely.
