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...

We didn't do a full visit, as we were pressed for time, but it is neat that it is so old, and well preserved. The cemetery out back was neat too, but since we didn't pay, we didn't want take advantage. If you are into old churches, you'd probably like this one.

The volunteer tour guide was very knowledgeable and very happy to share not only the 'old world" history about the church, but also shared some local and contemporary history with us as we walked through. The significance of the church is very important and unique site everyone should see.

At 400 years old, this is a rare find for the western hemisphere. The space is airy with beautiful details, especially the dark beams. Entering via the wonderful cemetery is extra special. Great views over the town.

One of our favorite attractions is St. Peter's church. It absolutely reeks of history. The church is beautiful and is chock ablock with interesting things to occupy... More

When I take my tour participants to St. Peter's which by the way should be "Their Majesties Chappell" as it has been officially designated they are truly in awe of this church which was first build in 1612. It is the oldest Anglican church outside the British Isles. The present structure was built on the same foundations in 1713/1714 after... More

When I initially drafted my list of sites to see during my weeklong visit to Bermuda, this was one of the first sites on the list; I was not disappointed. Below are my comments by functional area. Expectations. I primarily enjoy military museums, fortifications, aircraft and ships. However, I also visit sites of historical significance like this one - especially... More
