Christ Church Cathedral, Nelson
(4.6/5 based on 170 reviews on the web)
Visit Christ Church Cathedral, an impressive, modern place of worship located in the city center. Construction of the current building lasted from 1925 to 1965 and involved the sourcing of marble from the Pakikiruna Range and granite from Tonga Beach. The bell tower's elongated shape and skeletal form give great photo opportunities of the sky visible through the structure. Step inside to see the bright, bold stained glass windows. Whether you visit for spiritual or architectural reasons, the chapel represents a welcoming place for all. Do keep in mind, however, that it remains an active church, so be respectful of those who have come to worship. Make Christ Church Cathedral a part of your Nelson vacation plans using our Nelson itinerary planner.

  • Beautiful Anglican cathedral in downtown Nelson; the exterior looks with a mix of architectural styles in granite, truly unique! The Interior is very quiet and bright. Beautiful rose window and wood furnishings.
