Beautiful, historic medieval church with some interesting buildings behind it (Abbey and Prysten house), also several stained glass windows by the historic, talented duo John Piper and Patrick Reyntiens.

A lovely centre piece to Plymouth. Services are held and the Christmas mass is a must to attend. This church survived being bombed in the war. Beautiful stain glass windows and a quiet place for contemplation.

Welcoming to visitors and historically and architecturally very interesting. Outstanding modern stained glass windows designed by John Piper. A visit there is a good introduction to both the ancient and recent history of the city

Plymouth doesn't have an anglican cathedral despite it being a city. The minster church of St. Andrew's is a must visit, beautiful stain glass windows and lots of history and heritage. If you are there when the bells are being rung it is beautiful to listen to as is the splendid organ

The early services (0800 communion) cater to the traditionalists with the Book of Common Prayer being used. The mid morning Sunday service is inclined to be very 'family friendly' - guitars & children. The Easter Sunday Service was nearly full. A real tribute to the vicar & his team.

I never really understand Tripadvisor's approach to sub categories. You would expect to find St Andrews and several other Plymouth churches in that section. I like St Andrew's as an active very well suited large spiritual space used and very popular for both spiritual and secular events. The interior is one of the most sensitive and fitting in the city.

Pity that there aren't some interior photographs showing more of the interior. It is a beautiful peaceful space.
