I have visited this Anglican Cathedral several times, I went with friends but the first time i went on my own - had it all to myself, and enjoyed the peaceful grounds, it was almost as if the grounds and walls of this old colonial and very important building was trying to get my attention and speak to me of...

Reminiscent of British Colonial buildings. Modest church, nothing overwhelming. The grounds are well kept and it's across the corner from the old Governor's house. It makes for a nice walk to get here from the Swing bridge.

We walked from the port through Belize City to St. John's Cathedral. The women were putting up Christmas decorations while we were there. There were tombstones in the yard.

My hubby and I had about thirty minutes to kill before hopping a boat to Caye Caulker, so we left Ocean Ferry Belize's terminal, crossed Swing Bridge, and walked Regent's Street to St. John's (took ten minutes). There's not much else to do in Belize City besides walk the Regent and Albert St. loop. While the mahogany door and pews... More

It would be easier to provide a telling review if there was someone in attendance who could provide some insites into what we were seeing. We wandered around the grounds which were beautifully attended. The shrubs were beautiful and the trees were all nicely trimmed, but outside of a couple of bougainvillas I have no idea what plants were there.... More

This is a small church, with almost no distinguishing or interesting facets to worry about. That it was the first Anglican church in Belize is what makes it worth a stop, but once you're there, don't expect to be impressed.

I understand and was glad to read the perspective of the people that attend St John's Cathedral. It's great to read about it's personal importance to people. As a tourist however, I did not find it interesting beyond it's historical perspective. I wish I could have seen inside to have a true perspective and I was glad to see it... More

This is an interesting church building. The church was built over a period of several years using bricks brought in from England. A local told us that the bricks used in construction were brought over by several ships and as a result... the color of the bricks changed as they built up the walls. Kind of looks like it was...
