Reputed to be the oldest church in the western hemisphere and shows the quality of workmanship that goes into Bermuda buildings. Cedar (unlike any other) abounds and the graveyard is full of early Bermudian sailing history. Highlights the move of the capital from St. George to Hamilton in many ways. Well worth a visit, but watch those steps!

Construction of native cedar almost completely gone from Bermuda now is not to be missed, they do not build them like they used to. Historical treasure trove of info on old families of Bermuda. Do not miss the "separate, but equal" slave grave yard behind the church itself.

Beautiful, quaint site. Guide is excited to give a personal tour with lots of information. As a sailor arriving in Bermuda by sailboat, it gave a sense of being connected to past generations of sailors. Anyone with an interest in history will enjoy it of course. Highly recommended, and so convenient from Ordnance island.

The church was open during the day for visitors. It was amazing to see all of the Bermuda cedar and to realize that this building is still used for services today! My husband has deep roots in Bermuda so it was especially meaningful to us to visit. If you love church architecture and sacred spaces, this should be on your... More

Very quaint Church. Smells great thanks to the cedar it's built of. Don't miss the slave graveyard off to the side which seemed like a sad place full of history. Worth a quick 20-30 minutes visit as part of your walking tour of St. George.

There's a reason why St Peter's is also called the cedar church. Built largely of the local wood, it is still redolent of the lovely scent. The building is well worth the visit and the tour guide gave a very good, if brisk, history. Well worth a visit.

Very old church with lots of history, beautiful timbers, windows and artifacts. Easy to find, access to other parts of St George through the graveyard. Many interesting gravestones.

This is the oldest Anglican Church in continuous operation outside of the British Isles. The church was built in the 1620's and being inside the church is like taking a walk back in time. The church was going to be replaced by a large cathedral but for whatever reason, after construction of the cathedral was started, the cathedral was never... More
