Closed for renovation

Currently (Aug 16) closed for renovation, and the grounds are looked and scrappy. Makes a good picture on a sunny day, but not currently worth going near it.

We could see this church from our cruise ship and decided to make the hike over to it. It's about 6-8 blocks from Heritage Quay to the church, and the town of St. John's is not very nice.

as mentioned previously by other people - this cathedral is worth a visit to see the work that is being done to restore this beautiful old cathedral - the timber was all eaten away by termites!!! it is a historic site and worth a donation in the box whether you can actually enter or not.

We were shown the renovation work at this beautiful historic building by a wonderful volunteer. When the work is finished the cathedral will again be stunning. Made a donation on leaving, there is also a small gift shop to help raise funds for the work. Would love to go back and see the finished article.

We walked around it but we were unable to enter because it was under construction. It's a historic site in St. John's.

We stopped by during a cruise stop at Antigua, and were impressed with the renovations inside the cathedral. They ask for a small donation, and I hope it goes to renovating the grounds as well!
