Bryn Athyn Cathedral reviews
The cathedral is absolutely beautiful, we did not take the tour but will probably return to do so. It’s awe inspiring! more »
You must take the guided tours of all 3 facilities that are adjacent to each other and all are on the most breathtaking of grounds! Restrooms galore and a great value for more »
I love coming here to get away from the Hustle and bustle of the city. The Cathedral and surrounding grounds are such a tranquil place to sit and read a book, bask in the sun, or go on a tour of the cathedral and mansion.
My sister and I love to come here to see the incredible views, art, craftmanship, and history. It's so peaceful to walk the grounds. Amazing story of the faith of the people of the New Church. Highly recommended!
