St. John's Cathedral Tours

St. John's Cathedral
St. John’s Cathedral is the oldest standing Anglican church in Hong Kong, completed in 1849. Gothic in style, it’s built in the shape of a cross and features lancet arches and stained glass windows. The cathedral offers a peaceful respite from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong in the heart of Central.
 
The Basics
One of only five cathedrals in Hong Kong, St. John’s Cathedral is the seat of the Archbishop of Hong Kong. It has held services every year since it was founded, other than during World War II, when it served as a social club for the occupying Japanese military. Badly damaged in World War II, it has since been restored, and a war memorial stands next to it.
 
Stop by on a self-guided tour or see it as a part of a small-group walking tour and visit other historical and notable attractions in the area, including the former Legislative Council Building and City Hall.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • St. John’s is a functioning cathedral, so visitors should be respectful of worshippers.
  • Services are usually in English, but occasionally in Mandarin, Cantonese, and Filipino.
  • A bookstore on-site offers books, stationery, cards, and items related to Hong Kong history.
 
How to Get There
St. John’s Cathedral is located at No. 4–8 Garden Road, Central District. To get there by public transit, take the MTR to Central Station (Exit K) and walk southeast. Alternatively, take bus 15C from Central Ferry Pier 6 to the Lower Peak Tram Terminus in Garden Road.
 
When to Get There 
St. John’s Cathedral is open daily to visitors, with different hours on different days. Those who wish to see the cathedral in action should visit during a service. Sunday mass is popular and usually crowded.
 
Nearby Attractions
St. John’s Cathedral is surrounded by some of Hong Kong Island’s iconic skyscrapers, including Bank of China Tower and Cheung Kong Center. For a change of pace, visit nearby Hong Kong Park and the Zoological and Botanical Gardens. Also nearby is the Peak Tram Terminus, which takes visitors to Victoria Peak for panoramic views over Hong Kong and Victoria Harbour.
