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. There are even some important people buried on the property which you can also tour. The visit is free, but... More

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.

A sweet part of history at this lovely church. Make sure you go inside as it isn't what you imagined!

I would recommend taking the self guided tour of the city as this is one of the sites that you can explore and it's a small enough area that is easily walk-able. The church is quaint and fairly simple but still a great look at history and culture. The architecture is lovely and the cemetery is interesting as it gives... More

Had a guide to give us a tour of the church and of the cemetery that surrounds the church. A lot of interesting pieces of history within this small church and church yard

An historic site. Beautifully maintained. Great artefacts. A must see place in this great "city". I would like to return and perhaps have a guided tour if they do that?
