“concert venue”

St. John's Anglican Church
Ranked #2 of 29 things to do in Lunenburg
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed December 8, 2014

The church is beautiful in itself and interesting for its rise from the ashes after a serious fire. Take a cushion if you have: wooden pews can be hard sitting. For the concert I found the acoustics poorly adjusted with the band often overpowering the singer but this is probably the largest venue available in Lunenburg

A wonderful place to visit for an historic experience. The wood of the church was intended to duplicate stone masonry work and it does this beautifully. The inside is a special place to chill out and relax. Worth spending a quiet, contemplative half hour.

This building is significant both historical and architecturally - the rebuild from the fire is amazing. It is a very beautiful church both inside and outside. Well worth the visit - take the time to go inside and enjoy the quiet and solitude and reflect on the history of the building.

Pleasant church in historic Lunenburg.

Interesting to hear of the history of Canada's second oldest Protestant Church including the fire and the restoration thereafter.

A peaceful place well worth a look.

Recommended.

An amazing achievement to rebuild after the fire to such a standard and friendly people. Our guide was excellent on the coach tour - a retired history teacher.
