- It is an edifice worth competing with the European palaces, well worth a visit. Unfortunately, it closes at 4:30 or so and we were there too late to see the interior which I read is gorgeous. I recommend coming into town a bit earlier.Written July 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.

- Unfortunately, it is under a revitalization process, therefore, we kind of missed the opportunity to see its full beauty. The city aims to complete the project next year...Written July 18, 2022This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- Majestic Anglican cathedral church in downtown Fredericton was consecrated in 1853. It is built in the Gothic Revival style. I did not go in – it was closed when I passed, but I did view the interior online. The cathedral was designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1983. It is the only Cathedral in Canada that is not itself a parish.Written August 19, 2021
- Great free walking tour of the city. I highly recommend it. We learned lots about the city and the garrison district. Our guide was very knowledgeable. Many thanks to Matthew!
On our way back, we saw our guide again and toured the historic jail/soldier’s quarters. So much to see and so much history! So glad we stopped in Fredericton and did the tour!Written August 25, 2023
- This was pretty cool. Walking in the streets around is so cute and fun. Very colourful. Downtown is near by if you want to go to eat.Written January 3, 2023
- Stumbled upon this place while walking around Fredericton and decided to stop for a drink on the patio. It is a great spot which fantastic views over the river. Nice choice of beers. Recommended.Written September 14, 2022
- We enjoyed visiting the area and reading the informational plaques in front of each building. The young ladies at the historic City Hall were friendly and helpful in explaining our options. The museum is open, but Officer’s Square is still under construction as of August 2023.Written August 19, 2023
- St. Anne's is a true example of Gothic architecture brought to Fredericton by Bishop John Medley. Built in 10 months in 1846 - 1847 it stands today as built 170 years ago. Built as a place of worship while The Cathedral was being constructed it remains to this day a place of worship. Filled with memories for thousands who have come through its doors it is a must see for visitors this summer. There's a tour guide on duty Monday to Saturday 10 to 4 and in July they have musical concerts every Wednesday starting at 12:10.Written July 12, 2018
- Fredericton has never really been up to the minute when it comes to architectural trends, so it's not surprising that when the Baptist congregation rebuilt their downtown church in the 1880s that they would go with Gothic revival. After all, the stodgy establishment types had been building Gothic revival for years. So, when designing the outside, it's not surprising that the upstart Baptists would try for a bit of respectability via that route.
The intricate sandstone stonework facade is lovely, but the simple shape of the exterior, with stepped spires pointing in the direction one must assume the congregation thinks of as heaven is most striking, especially when viewed from a distance. Unfortunately, the main steeple with its intricate wrought iron finial had to be removed earlier this year. Fortunately, the large congregation is great at raising money and will probably have it back up and repaired in record time. For now, however, the effect on the shape of the building is less than ideal.
The local shipbuilding tradition gives a special flavour to the interior. You can really imagine that the artisans and carpenters who worked on the interior spent most of their time building wooden schooners, although probably most of them were actually cabinet makers and land carpenters. You can't mistake the traditional Baptist prayer meeting layout - ideal for singing and being heard, and for keeping an eye on your neighbours.
In typical Fredericton ecclesiastical fashion, the pews are uncomfortable. I am given to understand that the contemporary services (Christian rock music), that take place in the gym next door have better seating, but it lacks a certain gravitas that many like to associate with their preferred deity.Written December 7, 2016
- Visiting Fredericton from out of province and enjoyed the Sunday church service and coffee get together afterwardsWritten September 14, 2018
- The Host Aarathi is a really great person . A visit is highly recommended . The location is also excellent .Written May 10, 2022
- I prefer a less modern church. Seems a bit too liberal for me, not much reverence. We don't need people-pleasing priests, we need them to direct their parishioners to heaven.Written July 20, 2018
