They always seem so peaceful and the beautiful stained glass windows are mesmerizing. How they built them back in the day, to be so beautiful amazes me. Felt welcome there.

St James Cathedral is known for its music, and its stained glass is also very good. A Christmas service here is inspiring even to unbelievers like myself. The church is open all day., and a visit even outside service times is rewarding.

It is the largest Anglican church in the country. Spectacular inside and a great place to take a solitude break in the middle of a very busy city. Also great acoustics that allows for good music.

with fresh retail spaces and pop-up cafes. Home to
