This is a gorgeous cathedral in the middle of Napier. If you're around for a Sunday service, as I have been a few times, and for funerals, the choir and the organist are a beautiful, audio treat.

A beautiful place to visit and see the architecture and history associated with it. Depending on the your choice of detail information you can spend from one hour to 3 hours. The staff is very friendly too.

Definitely worth an hour of your time. The staff on hand are very nice and friendly and will tell you the story of the Cathedral. There is a lot of history associated with this building. To much to detail here but look it up and you will find it very interesting.
