Easily accessible, just be careful as once you enter Grahamstown the roads are full of potholes. Can be spotted without need of GPS due to size.

Went to listen to a choral recital by the Kwantu choir during the Grahamstown festival. Gorgeous stained glass windows and tapestries adorn the church. Lovely sculpture of Reverend Trevor Huddleston, with accompanying info about him and his work against racial prejudice.

Among several historic buildings and many, many churches in Grahamstown, this one is the centre piece of the town. Didn't get to go inside, but it's an amazing building to see from the outside anyway.

A good place to start any exploration of the city and although not as old as you might think this church offers the visitor an insight to Grahamstown which has seen a lot of history on its streets and surrounding area.
