How to get there:

On Garden Street in Hong Kong Island near the Bank of China Building, just west of Hong Kong Park. Halfway between Metro stations Central (to the west, use Exit JR) and Admiralty (to the east) and approximately two blocks south of Chater Road.

The Anglican St. John's Cathedral on Garden Street, built in 1847, was one of the first Christian churches in Hong Kong. Today, it is one of the few colonial structures standing after decades of high-rise construction along Hong Kong's narrow ledge of relatively level land. During World War II, Japanese troops used the church as a social club. The Cathedral has been renovated numerous times and is now the primary house of worship for Anglicans in Hong Kong and Macau, providing services in Cantonese, Mandarin, English and Tagalog.
