St John's Cathedral is located on a hill in Central district next to Cheung Kong Park, it is said to be the oldest Anglican church in the Far East. From the outside the cathedral is simple in design, painted in a mutted yellow and cream...More
It is one of the few Colonial buildings remaining in Hong Kong so worth a visit for that alone. A peaceful setting amongst the hustle and bustle of a modern city. Has a bookshop in the grounds. Closes at 6pm. Free entry.
Had been at the Peak from early morning and on our way back to Central we visited St. John’s Cathedral to have a few peacefull moments.
Lovely English style Anglican Church set in nice grounds amongst the modern skyscrapers of Hong Kong, such a lovely...More
We stumbled on St. John's when we were on our way to the Victoria Peak tram as you have to pass through the grounds. It opened its doors in 1849 but the Japanese occupied it during the war and ruined many of its fittings including...More

I found St John’s cathedral just walking around downtown Hong Kong. I saw the entrance to the church yard and started to explore. As an Anglican, I’m very glad I did. I’m also very relieved to see freedom of religion in Hong Kong, even since...More
This 170 years old Anglican church still sits prominently despite it being dwarfed by the steel and glass skyscrapers surrounding it. It still retains the charm of a church built in the Neoclassicism period with its Gothic influences. Serene within, reflecting peace and quiet, this...More
When people think of Hong Kong, most imagine movies with famous skyscrapers dominating the skyline. The area widely known as Central is the major financial hub and entertainment district, which truly lives up to the saying, “work hard, play hard.” Bars stay open late into the night and there just happens to be a street party every weekend. Although everything seems to be operating at lightning speed, Central is full of
quiet, hidden gems. Nestled between office towers are wet markets and some of the city’s oldest restaurants dating back to the 1960s. Feeling a bit overwhelmed? Retreat from the crowds by exploring beautifully restored historical buildings and even a green oasis of botanical gardens.
