St Andrew's Cathedral, Singapore

4.0
Tall, elegant spires and a long, grand nave lined with white arches await you at St Andrew's Cathedral. This Neo-Gothic, Anglican cathedral is the country's largest, originally built in 1836. The cathedral was twice rebuilt in its history, the second time due to irreparable damage after being twice hit by lightning. The cathedral is home to three large, stained-glass installations that stand out against the stark overall whiteness. Free, guided tours are offered when services are not in session; during these tours volunteers delve into the cathedral's rich history and intricacies.

  • I really enjoyed this place because in my opinion it’s the perfect place for meditation and to pray. I visited a lot of churches around the world but I really appreciate this one. Very well maintained inside and outside the building. Also the surrounding garden is very good and peaceful.
  • A very well restored building in the Newly Enhanced Civic district of Singapore. A classic structure that reflects it's heritage. Still a functioning church. Rather vibrant. Many services for both locals n visitors alike.
  • Really liked the vintage feel of the cathedral, both inside and out. As it's just most recently been renovated, the cathedral is poised in a very favorable position to attract visitors across all walks of life. Service is also very much enjoyable as there are screens all around for your viewing pleasure.
  • It's a very nicely decorated historic cathedral for a wedding service. Long aisles, nicely renovated chairs, and well ventilated insides. They are also lucky enough to have the entire plot of land to themselves, making it very spacious all around to hold receptions and find parking space.
  • I visited this Church last July 2017 and it was a fantastic experience. The church is no beautiful and bibles are available for church goers in the seats.

Where to stay in Singapore

For leading chain hotels, head to the area around Orchard Road, considered the tourist center of Singapore due to its varied selection of rooms, good travel links, and tourist-focused businesses. At the eastern end of the road, you'll find more luxurious and expensive options, with hotels located in impressive colonial-era architecture. North and south of this main artery, backpacker hostels and budget hotels provide affordable rooms with basic facilities.
