Worth a visit to understand more of the history of Bermuda. You will see the plaques to the inhabitants who died of yellow fever, caused i believe by dietary insufficiency The original part of the church is worth seeing. It was constructed all of wood The little churchyard tells many a story

This is the oldest Anglican church as they tell you upon entering. Once inside there is not much to see beyond the structure which is well maintained. I took a short time to check out the corners and the plaques and the garden surrounding it is lovely. I assume in the summer it might be perfect spot to escape the... More

All I can say is that every word of the TA reviews is accurate. This is a place to linger, savoring everything it has to tell...and a leisurely stroll around the burying grounds is a must. A not to miss treasure.

The oldest Anglican church in the new world, the cedar beams inside, the lighting fixtures, the many memorials to those who have passed on the walls, and the graves that surround this church take you back in time. Indicative of the slave trade that came to the island, black parishioners are buried on one side of the church and white... More

The church offers a great glimpse back through time. Lots of plaques on the wall to read to give you a sense of the local families who made up the community of St. George. Lovely architecture and furnishings. Be sure to take some time to explore the graveyard outside. Many of the headstones are so old you can no longer... More

Just a beautiful church to see as a tourist and amazing to attend an 11 AM service. The history is incredible, with historical cemetery on either side. Be sure to see the cemetery section designated for freed slaves. Inside, the church is done in beautiful Bermuda cedar. Be sure to look at the ceiling beams; open one of the "doors"... More

This church is definitely worth a few minutes of your time as you're wandering St. George's. It's right off the main square, so not too far from everything. According to their literature, it's the oldest Anglican (and Protestant) church in the western hemisphere, which in and of itself is pretty cool - it's almost 400 years old. The inside is... More

We watched the Christ Church bell choir performance here on the Christmas walkabout and it was wonderful.

What a good thing that the unfinished church is just that, otherwise it would have replaced St Peter's. The layout of the church is unique in my experience (of Anglican churches throughout the world); with a north-south axis leading from the main doors to the lectern and pulpit, with the altar off at 90 degrees to the east. This reflects... More

If one is expecting St. Peter's to be a grand European Duomo you will be disappointed. However St. Peter's St. George is a charming provincial church with some real treasures including the grave of the last American serviceman to die in the War of 1812 as well as the final resting place of the lovely American lady whose portrait graces...
