St. Peter's Cathedral is a gorgeously decorated historical Catholic church. Doors are open for people to pass through (for sightseeing or for quiet reflection) and there's quite a bit of information on the walls (i.e. historical placards) that makes it worth a look, especially if...More

This type of cathedral is very rare in Ontario. It reminds me of St. Peter's in Rome; just not as ornate. It is well maintained and a perfect spot for reflection and meditation. I visit it often.

This church is next to a park we were stretching our legs in. The church itself is very nostalgic and grand. The doors were open for visitors to view.

Beautiful church adjoined by Victoria Park. Stop in and take look if you are in the area. Parking can be tricky to find, but we found free street parking a few blocks a way on Central Ave (opposite the church). Easy walk to the church.

The Basilica in London is beautiful! Be sure to take a moment to read the plaque outside of the church detailing the history of it.

Well, I think general respect and being quiet is expected. Do not use a FLASH. IF you see people in a mass, even if small - you should restrict photos -maybe just a couple at a side alter. If people are in prayer -again... More

Most days St.Peter's is open until 5 -> 6pm for anyone to visit. It is a truly beautiful Cathedral Basilica.
