Lonely Planet review

Constructed in the 1870s by the Universities’ Mission to Central Africa (UMCA), the Anglican cathedral was the first Anglican cathedral in East Africa. It was built on the site of the old slave market alongside Creek Rd. Although nothing remains of the slave market today, other than some holding cells under St Monica’s Hostel next door, the site remains a sobering reminder of the not-so-distant past. Services are still held at the cathedral on Sunday mornings; the entrance is next to St Monica’s Hostel.
