We walked around the town and saw this beautiful church on the hill. It has a rich history and is particularly pretty outside.

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.

The Cathedral has a dominant position overlooking Nelson as it is its right to have and the building itself is quite impressive in its dull gray bricks. Inside it is quite modest but the gardens around are worth a look as is the church inside.

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.
