St George's Anglican Cathedral

St George's Anglican Cathedral

Designed by Sir Herbert Baker and built with Table Mountain sandstone, the cathedral is the mother church of the Anglican community in South Africa. St George's is famous for its close association with Archbishop Desmond Tutu and regular performances of inspiring sacred music.


St George's Cathedral (in full, The Cathedral Church of St George the Martyr) is the Anglican cathedral in Cape Town, South Africa. It is the seat of the Archbishop of Cape Town. A gorgeous example of Victorian era design with magnificent stained glass windows and a crypt in which there is a restaurant - reminiscent of St Martin’s in the Field in London - lies on Wale Street in Cape Town, and is known as ‘the people’s cathedral’ because of its role in the resistance against apartheid.
