A very unusual but fascinating building from the outside and the inside is stunning. The organ and where the organist sits is near the front of the church and the stained glass windows are absolutely fabulous,

This really is worth a visit. Gorgeous stained glass, fabulous organ, and information boards all round. Music playing, including hit songs (I Believe by the Bachelors) really add to the lovely atmosphere.

The walk up the stairs was worth the effort. Not many but a few. Discovered later a flatter way in. The church was beautiful. Large organ and lovely stained glass windows.

Look completely different on the out side. but on the inside it looks just like the Christchurch Central.

A place of beauty and space. Loved the 'feel' of the place. Obviously loved and worshipped in. Was made to feel very welcome at the lunchtime Mass

To most eyes this would not rank as a cathedral. There are no vast expanses of stained glass and it is quite small, It was originally a church and looks like it but it is worth a visit as part of an exploration of Nelson...More

Have a wander through this lovely building. Lots to read and absorb. We dropped in when they were rehearsing the choir, superb.

The inside of this Cathedral is breathtaking. The stained glass windows are amazing, there is so much history and things to look at. Well worth a visit.

Don't be put off by the exterior. The ugly bell tower does the Cathedral no favours. Walk around to the "Front" and things get better. Inside even more so. It is light and airy and interesting
