Beautiful gardens surround this impressive landmark. I love the cutout effect of the bell tower. Most unique. Beautiful stained glass windows add to a warm glow throughout the interior.

There are some unique features about this cathedral and it is somewhere that is well worth a visit if you are in Nelason.

Christ Church is not a reason to visit this site aside from the tall bell tower. Church Hill is certainly the main attraction from my perspective. I loved the historical memorials on a hill chocked full of flowers and various fauna. We just loved walking...More

It's a nice cathedral but after 5 minutes you have seen it. The glass windows are very beautiful and the entrance is free.
