Christ Church Cathedral

Cathedral in Downtown & West End

Completed in 1895 and designated as a cathedral in 1929, the city's most attractive Gothic-style church is nestled incongruously alongside looming glass towers. It's home to a wide range of cultural events, including regular choir and chamber music recitals and the occasional Shakespeare reading. The grand wooden ceiling is well-worth a look and a handsome adjoining bell tower was also recently added to the site.

Peruse the kaleidoscopic array of stained-glass windows inside the cathedral, including a swirling contemporary creation on the cathedral's W Georgia St side.
