Now that you have found us in the Virtual world, there are many reasons to visit our Cathedral in 'real life!'

There is normally some parking in our parking lot on the South side of the Cathedral, but there is also on-street parking available and a parking garage on Duckworth Street, just a couple of minutes walk from the Cathedral.

The Anglican Cathedral of St. John the Baptist is a National Historic Site. We welcome visitors from all over the world! We offer tours during the Summer months and by appointment throughout the year.

Summer 2021

The Cathedral will be open from 12 noon to 7 p.m. Tuesdays to Fridays, and 12 noon to 5 p.m. on Saturdays. Entrance will be by the Stone Porch on Gower Street or the West doors (depending on the weather!), so that we avoid the restoration work at the wooden porch. Opening hours may be restricted in the event of funerals, weddings, and baptisms.

Most days, if we are not open for tours, you can still have a self-guided tour by coming to the Office Entrance. Contact us if you want to make arrangements. 

The Crypt Tea Room: It will come as no surprise that we have decided not to proceed with the Crypt Tea Room for 2021. Even though restrictions are being gradually lifted, we simply do not have the space to be able to offer the Tea Room in a safe and responsible manner. We hope that the Crypt Tea Room will be able to return in 2022.

However, we know how much you miss the Tea Room, so...

The Crypt Tea Room Presents: “Tea to your Table!”

Arriving at the Cathedral

When coming for a service or event at the Cathedral, the usual entrance is one of the doors on Gower Street (Stone porch or Wooden porch). Normally, the Great West Doors are only used for special occasions  or when the weather is particularly pleasant.

As a product of the 19th Century, the Cathedral can be challenging for accessibility. The upper and lower levels are accessible, with some assistance with the doors, but there is no convenient access within the building to move between floors (there is a rather steep set of stairs).  There is some Blue Zone parking available on Gower Street and in the parking lot.

The Office is in the lower level of the Cathedral, with the Entrance in the Parking Lot.
