St George's Anglican Cathedral, Kingston

4.6
#7 of 8 in Historic Sites in Kingston
As the mother church for the Anglican Diocese of Ontario, St. George's contains the 'cathedra' or Bishop's chair, the symbol of his leadership.

First and foremost, St. George's Cathedral is a centre of worship, and is frequently used for major religious events for both Anglican and ecumenical gatherings.

In addition, it is used for both state and civic affairs. For many years Royal Military College cadets and other military groups have marched into St. George's for worship on special occasions.

Because of its fine acoustics, musical concerts are frequently held here.

St. George's is an important tourist attraction in Kingston, and is visited annually by thousands of people from all over the world.

  • This Cathedral is nothing to do with the ones we have in France, she is very pretty on the outside, but very clean inside.

  • We have visited this cathedral for services and also for the free lunchtime concerts. The concerts are of very high quality . The choir is very good . Certainly a very good place to visit.
  • Good people
  • You will notice that with this style and its domes you wouldn't know at the first glance it's the Cathedral, but rather a hotel of the secular power. A nice visit to do also when you parking in the city center in the parking lot behind City Hall, you can get there on foot, quietly, do the shopping on the side of Princess Street, stroll on the lake front, and make your cruise to the thousand islands.

Where to stay in Kingston

The most desirable accommodations in Kingston line the waterfront in the city's downtown region, offering views over the wide St. Lawrence River. If you want to immerse yourself in the city's hippest scene, look slightly west to the area around Queen's University, where you'll also enjoy easy access to some of Kingston's most pleasant parks. Those hoping to take some road trips out of the city should consider staying at one of the many motels and guesthouses along Princess Street--there, you're perfectly placed to hit the road and explore the region.
