St. Peter's Church is definately worth visiting. There are several plaques on the walls mentioning various seamen who died while at sea. It's a working church and it's definately worth walking around, and if you have time, go to the cemetary behind the church to see more interesting headstones. You'll get a good feel of what life was like in... More

Very old and charming. The inside is just beautiful. You can light a candle right up front and leave a message for an intention for the next day for 8 am mass. There is a very old graveyard on the grounds. Quite interestin to walk around and read some of the stones.

Fascinating history with an engaging and well informed attendant. Some lovely 17th century furniture pieces. A beautiful church yard. We were invited to stay as long as we like, take pictures of anything we liked. What a lovely and historic church.

Beautiful church. Architecture is so grand. The graveyard in the back makes you realize how fragile life really was and is. Worth the visit.

This church is the oldest in the New World, and it showed. It had all sorts of history throughout. It was originally made from the wreckage of the Sea Venture (1609!!) and some of that was kept even though it has been remodeled since. They had a nice scavenger hunt, which provided good information and also pointed our gaze toward... More

this place is the most comfortable building in town. Go for the history and revel in the fact that the architect knew what we has doing with heat. Don't forget to leave a $$ in the box!!

Majesties Chappell, St Peter’s Church, and the oldest Anglican Church outside the British Isles. Although rebuilt more than once, the oldest parts date back to 1620. Inside, you must take off your hat, the exposed cedar beams were beautiful on the outside were gravestones for Joseph Stockdale who printed Bermuda’s first newspaper, the Bermuda gazette, and Governor George James Bruere...

It is the oldest Anglican Church in the Western Hemisphere. Nearly all internal structures made of Bermuda Cedar., even some pillars made of recognizable tree trunks. Murdered Governor, Sir Richard Sharples buried there. Some very old & interesting Gravestones.

This is a must if you plan to visit St George. The history of Bermuda is encapsulated in this building and the church, cemetery and memorials tell the story of the people who have made their home here. A lovely lady was on hand to answer any questions.
