Definitely worth a visit. We preferred this church to its bigger ‘cousins’ St Paul’s and St Patrick’s. Beautiful stained glass, in a lovely shaped space.

Scots Church is a quick stop that isn't at all crowded, is easy to see quickly, and has beautiful stained glass.

This is a lovely old church in the heart of Melbourne. From an architectural perspective it is very interesting. Well worth going if you can actually get into the church.

Full of discovery and delight, Melbourne’s laneways
tease the imagination long after you’ve put your weary
feet up to rest. They weave through the heart of the
city: cafes, bars, restaurants and boutiques,
throbbing with conversation and espresso coffee. You
never quite know what you’ll find around the next
corner: cobblestone alleys, old beer barrel hoists and
even vats of simmering organic soup. There is the air
