St George's Cathedral

This Victorian-style building designed by Bishop Gray, William West Jones and Sir Herbert Baker, is known as the ‘people’s place’, because of its role in the resistance against apartheid.St George’sCathedral is more than 178 years old and made its doors open to people of all races throughout the apartheid era.

St George’sAnglican Cathedral is the site of one of the country’s few labyrinths, and its stained glass windows include the work of Gabriel Loire. A figure of Mahatma Gandhi – who spent twenty years in South Africa – appears in the glass windows of the cathedral, because of his inspiration to fight racism with love. In the crypt of the cathedral lies a restaurant reminiscent of St Martin’s inLondon.
