Lovely old cathedral is worth a visit for its architecture and stained glass. But we went for the brief 9:30 evening Compline service with Gregorian chant and it was sublime.

We loved the tour of the church so much history and what a beautiful calming church with lots of glass in the heart of a very busy city. Come and enjoy some quiet time in the church! If this review was helpful please let me know...

The Christ Church Cathedral in Vancouver is well worth a stop. It's the oldest standing church in Vancouver, standing since 1888. That's a long time. The church is very pretty. We've certainly been to more visually impressive cathedrals around the world, but this one has some of the best stained glass windows we've seen. They are incredibly beautiful and certainly... More

Be sure to come in and take a service on Sunday if you're living nearby. The church is splendid. And the pastors and staffs are very nice.

We came across the Cathedral while walking down Burrard Street from our hotel down to the harbour. A beautiful old (by Vancouver standards) building in the middle of all the skyscrapers! So peaceful inside and beautifully kept. We had a nice conversation with the gentleman sitting just inside on 'reception'. There is no charge but donations are very welcome! We... More

This is a beautiful Anglican church and it is worth visiting. Other than the gentleman who was at a reception desk when we entered and who provided information about the church, and two other visitors, we were the only people in the cathedral. The church has a beautiful wood ceiling and a number of stained glass windows. Photographs are permitted.... More

We walked along Burrard St. from our hotel towards Canada Place and half way down, came to the Cathedral. We were expecting a large building but it was the size of a small Parish church. However, once inside we were greeted by a pleasant man seated at a desk, who was ready to give you any information we wanted yet... More

Gregorian chants are performed every Sunday at 9:30. This was such a nice change of pace for us after dinner at Diva at the Met, to walk over to this little church surrounded by modern skyscrapers and listen for awhile to the singers before calling it a night.
