“Highest Tower in Hamilton”
Reviewed 4 August 2014

The 140 foot Cathedral tower is visible all over Hamilton and offers a birds eye view of the pastel painted town. The weathered grey stone building is a few blocks of uphill walking from the port and stands proud over the landscape. The Gothic structure wasn't completed until 1991.

The altar screen depicts all of the saints that the island's churches are named after. It's cool inside - quiet and peaceful in comparison to the busy shopping streets just outside. You don't need much time here - maybe 15 or 20 minutes. Admission to the church is free; the climb to the top of the tower costs something like three dollars. Enjoy

“The stand out place on the skyline”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Set against the surrounding modern buildings this cathedral couldn't look more out of place. It's physical appearance being typical of one in England. Inside it has a large knave with 15 sculptures of Jesus and saints. The stained glass colours are very strong and show well in the sunlight. The 155 steps to the roof is worth the view if your fit enough. Although it's a view dominated by white roofs and a/c units after the bay. The single guy there was very engaging and talked for as long as you wanted about anything associated with the cathedral and to a lesser degree Bermuda. It was well worth the 45 mins.

“Peace & Quiet in the City”
Reviewed 8 July 2014

This church is striking! When I passed it walking in downtown Hamilton, I had to stop in. The sanctuary allows you to light a candle with a $0.50 donation. I really like how the doors were wide open in the middle of the day. It felt very comforting and welcoming.

“Beautiful Serene Place to Visit in Downtown Hamilton”
Reviewed 2 July 2014

We like to visit curches when we travel. We recommend you take a couple of minutes and visit this serene and peaceful church. It is only a couple of blocks from Front Street. The architecture and stained glass windows are worth the visit.

“Very beautiful church”
Reviewed 28 June 2014

I recently visited the church while on a cruise to Bermuda.The church is very close to the ferry terminal, about 5 minutes walk.It is only a block or two from the main bus terminal so it is in a very convenient location.We visited early in the morning, the lady at the gift shop was extremely helpful and pleasant.The stained glass windows and the altar are beautiful, it is worthwhile taking the time to look at all of them. I really liked the little memorial for Bermudians who fought in the World Wars.I did not go up into the tower, it was a little too hot for that.
