    St. Andrews is a beautiful old church - we were in there after sunset, as a distinct force unfolds the Church and their lighting again. Fortunately, at the time, she was also not full, so we were able to enjoy the rest.

  • Beautiful architecture, you can do a guided tour- have been there for services and the organ is amazing. One tip- in winter come warmly dressed if you are perching in the pews for a service... it does get rather chilly despite the heating in such a huge space. Beautiful stained glass windows... loved visiting.
  • Drop in for the beautiful architecture, and the oasis of peace, but make sure you see the great bible commissioned by Henry IIX and produced under the direction of Thomas Cromwell. Printed in Paris in 1539, it's an original. Check the wall opposite the entrance for the stonework coats of arms dating from 1604, taken from the Houses of Parliament in London. Well worth a visit. In my experience, as a church it is distinguished by the clarity of it's teaching and commitment to meaningful fellowship. Give it a try.
  • As Cathedrals go - it's a compact one in a great location - with the usual stained glass windows, sandstone columns, wooden seating and it has a very peaceful ambience which takes on a reverent quality on the occasions when an organ recital fills the inner void. It's worth sitting and enjoying.
  • Beautiful Cathedral, although the people who work there are very dogmatic and stuck. The beautiful architecture is not the same as the people who uphold that church.
  • Love this church and the women in it are so nice!!!

Where to stay in Sydney

Sydney offers visitors hundreds of lodging options in its central area, with choices suitable for most budgets. As expected in a major tourist destination, harbor views play a major role in determining room prices. Expect to pay more for ocean-view suites, especially if you visit at the peak of the tourist season or around big city events. If you don't need to stay in the center of Sydney, consider budget-friendly hotels near the airport, or look for smaller roadside motels in the city's South West neighborhood.
