It’s no wonder why St Andrew’s Cathedral is one of Singapore’s most treasured works of architecture. Gazetted as a national monument on 1973, you’ll stand in awe at its majestic facade, with extended pinnacles and a glossy white exterior.

This is the largest church in Singapore with breath taking stained glass panels. The high ceilings are reminscent of the gothic cathedrals that one sees in countries like England. Great photo opportunities.

You can't miss this large whitewashed church in the middle of Singapore. Getting into it is another thing! We wandered round the large lawned gardens to the main entrance which was closed. We eventually found a side entrance where maintenance work was being carried out but managed to get inside. Quite a plain building inside but lovely for a bit... More

It was pouring rain the day we visited and most entrances were closed off so we only took pix of the beautiful whitewashed exterior with its twin spires. Impressive to look at and grounds were nicely maintained.

A really attractive cathedral in the heart of Singapore. It is what you would expect from a visit to a church but very little information was available about its history, which would have been nice. However, it is a free attraction so you can't really complain. It is also open to all and allows photography.

I had totally missed this striking church on previous visit to Singapore. Impressive interior and exterior color. Extremely quiet. Probably should be rating this a 5. Very easy to visit. Hard to miss if you are on foot.

We went over to St Andrew's Cathedral during the Christmas break. There was a special Christmas fair on at the time. There were a lot of activities for children and an interesting one that inculcated the values of Christmas via a game. The grounds are fairly well maintained and were nice to walk around in. A nice place to get... More

This review is very late, so it may not be relevant. The cathedral was a love at first sight for me.I walked into the church on a Sunday afternoon, and it was beautiful, and calming. If you're looking for peace, I guess this would be the place to go. I still have pictures from my visit here,and they evoke the... More

We paid another visit to the cathedral recently whilst waiting for the National Gallery to open. It was a Saturday morning and so not too many people were around: easy to just walk through the gardens, admire the koi carp and appreciate the heritage of the old cathedral.

This fairly big, white church with a nice lawn beside is something worth stopping by for a few snapshots outside on the grounds. The inside though, I would say, is quite ordinary except for the tall, stained-glass windows behind the altar; there are no intricate carvings or statues of saints or anything like those here that I found quite commonly...

St Andrew's Cathedral is a traditional Anglican Church located outside Raffles City Shopping Centre. It has some new buildings as part of the complex and has an active christian community. Very friendly and a nice way to escape the hussle and bussle of Singapore.
