  • Nice Neo-gothic cathedral. I couldn't make the guided visit as it was Sunday. But the side gate was slightly open and I went into. It was really surprising, the service was ongoing with a chorus there...  more »
  • Loved seeing the building and it has a tea room downstairs in the Crypt!! The tour guide was very informative as well!  more »
  • This is quite a surprise in the middle of St. John's. It is a must as part of any walking tour whether, formal or informal.  more »

  • never been to nfld. father was christened in st johns in 1886 have a strong love for your island for good reason. 6 bros/.sis/plus parents born there. I am only us born. thx for post
  • Dropped into the cathedral as I was walking about downtown. Was met by a lovely older lady who was pleased to give me a guided tour. The building is magnificent and the stories she told me were very interesting. If you're there, make sure to look for the "special something" high up in one of the stone pillars along the righthand side (as you face the altar) of the church.
  • Good church with park
  • Beautiful Gothic cathedral with informative guides. Lots of history in that stone building.
  • Beautiful Church

Where to stay in St. John's

To appreciate the history and colorful architecture of North America's oldest colonial city, there's no better place to stay than in the city center. This popular neighborhood displays the city's iconic, brightly painted Victorian houses, with a selection of guesthouses and inns clustered around Government House. Staying just west of the city center, near the Memorial University of Newfoundland, works as a pleasant alternative, with the expansive Pippy Park right at your doorstep.
