Went to a lovely service the morning before we left George and felt so blessed just being part of this service. I am not Anglican, however i have enjoyed the service.

This is a beautiful old cathedral and well worth a visit. There are guides there to show you around and point out interesting facts about the Church. At Easter there are beautiful flower displays on view in keeping with Christ's death and resurrection.

We only saw the church from the outside as its not open all the time. Great architecture and from the photos the inside is also something to see. Well worth your visit when you are in George.

We stopped by on a Friday morning to take some photos. The church was busy being locked up, even though they could see we were trying to take pictures. Nobody greeted us and they really weren't interested in being helpful at all.

This is really a beautiful Cathedral. Very friendly people. I have been there on numerous occasions including the flower display for Easter. So peaceful when walking around the Cathedral. Worth a stop to take some pictures!

We went here for a music performance. This is a beautiful cathedral. It is not as elaborately decorated as the European cathedrals, but it has a feeling of peace and serenity. The acoustics are great!!

I would just like to correct a previous reviewer...the cathedral is in fact Anglican and not Catholic. It is a beautiful building set on beautiful grounds and is definately worth a look. I myself have a lot of special memories from there...weddings, christenings etc.

We attended Mass here Last Sunday and really enjoyed the Mass and the beauty of this little gem. You can see that it is an old church just by the quaintness of it and the beautiful wooden pews.

I so enjoyed my visit to St Marks as I had researched the history of this Cathedral on their user-friendly website. No amount of prior research can prepare you for actually standing in that hallowed place - the interior is exquisite, the exterior stonework remarkable....More
