Very pretty stained glass. Beautiful building. Helpful lady as we entered gave us a map and chatted to us about the place. You can light a candle and make a donation.

This cathedral isn’t as old as the cathedrals in europe, built in 1929, but t’s very beautiful. An interesting side note, the rock was quarried from Butchart Gardens.

This Anglican Church is magnificent in the simplicity of its looks. With great columns supports arched roofs in stone grey it is a wonderful building for those who worship there.

Wandering around inside (& outside in Pioneer Square) is certainly a lesson in history. A man came up to me, while inside, introduced himself and told me what features were important not to miss! It was a delightful time. Just note, in the Square you...More

There is no cost for admission and you can donate if you wish. It is heated and is open I think from around 0830 to 1800 at night so most of the day(may need to check times for closing).

There is no admission rate. There are tours of the bell tower...really worthwhile. You can just wander in and around the cathedral any day....I am not sure of the exact hours, sorry.
