Interesting visit

At the moment the Cathedral is undergoing extensive renovations but is still worth a visit, there are a some good examples of 16th 17th century graves.

This is a beautiful cathedral both inside and out. This cathedral has some of the most intricate stone work on the front of it. The large wooden doors also have intricate carvings on them. Walk inside to the beautiful columns and stained glass windows. The outside has a beautiful garden with fountain and if ypu are lucky you might get... More

Apparently termites caused the problems which led to it being closed. The restoration is well under way with termite proofed pews and ceiling. The external roof is now galvanised. It's worth going inside and talking to the guides there (and leave a donation however small to help with on-going restoration. The grounds (cemetery) are nice with lots of trees, and... More

Antigua is a tropical island with pristine beaches a lovely English Harbor and Nelson's Dockyard where everybody anchors. While your here the Cathedral of St. John has some renovation but still looks in near of repair. The town of St. John could also use some hammering and nails, and a coat of paint. The lush color of the rainforest is... More

We had a hard time finding it but when we did it was a lovely old church alive with history. We walked the grounds and into the church. Very nice visit.

This is a beautiful cathedral that has been allowed to fall into serious disrepair. It made me sad to see how even the grave yard surrounding the sanctuary was not maintained and the weeds were allowed to overtake the grounds. Some of the interior has been restored. About a third of the ceiling was finished and it is beautiful. I... More

We were fortunate to get inside the cathedral as it is still under renovation. The roof has had to be replaced as it had been infested with termites. The pews have been replaced and the wood carvings are spectacular. They will get there, but it is taking time. The pulpit has lovely original carving. This has recently be given the... More

Went on a cruise ship day and were welcomed by a guide. He was very helpful. he said the renovation would be ready in July- very optimistic but the new roof and the pews are beautifully made of new yellow pine and the finished result should be magnificent and will include a refurbished organ

We walked up to the cathedral while exploring St. Johns. A gentleman met us at the door and explained that the cathedral was under construction-- there had been a significant termite infestation and it necessitated all of the 'innards' of the church be replaced. The area was full of new pews and they were clearly working on it. It is... More

The cathedral was a site to see. It's currently under construction, which started 7 years ago and is expected to be completed early next year. When the renovation started, it unveiled more damage than expected. The interior is wood and it was found to be damaged by termites. and has taken this long to restore to the original state on...
