Aside from the history, it is less well known that the assassinated Governor and his young adc are buried on the East side of the churchyard. We always pay our respects, and the graves are worthy of your attention.

When visiting the beautiful town of St George's in Bermuda it is well worth taking time to visit this beautiful church which is full of social history. It is the oldest Anglican Church outside the United Kingdom. Some of the headstones date back 300 years, there is a poignant reminder of Bermuda's history when you enter the separate graveyard for...

If you can make it up the steps, it's a great church to visit with a whole lot of history. The woodwork, and cabinetry are exquisite. The loft where the black people stood, is a reminder of a black eye on history. Spent a lot of time inside just marveling at the workmanship

If you make it to St. George's definitely stop at this little church, it is over 400 years old. There is a graveyard in the proximity as well which is worth a walk through.

It was very cool to visit the oldest church in the western hemisphere. Along with a visit and nice elderly lady that has attended the church many years gave us a tour and shared a lot of history about it.

A very simple, yet beautiful church. Not as busy as the rest of the city. It's a great place to escape from the hot sun and relax. Definitely worth going to.

Bermuda is a busy place with mopeds and bikes and the bustle of taxis and other traffic, but time stands still at this simple little church. This is the oldest Anglican Church still in use in the Western Hemisphere and parts of it date back to 1620. The outside is whitewashed and spotlessly clean. The inside is plainly decorated and...

It is just stunning to walkthrough the church with the history oscillating from the walls, make sure you walk in the grave yard out back. Also great views of the water and surrounding area.
