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?

I just love to visit old churches and I am glad I did not miss this one.This church was rebuilt in 1713 after the original structure was destroyed by a hurricane. The pulpit and chalice date back to 1625. It is a very simple but beautiful place and is so lovingly preserved. Don't forget to stroll through the graveyard in... More

Our visit to St. Peter’s was the highlight of our trip to Bermuda. The church and grounds are lovingly preserved and the volunteers are happy to show you their beloved church. We had seen reviews of the church on Tripadvisor and in travel guides but you cannot really appreciate St. Peter’s until you visit. It is as if you stepped... More

You won't spend much time at St. Peter's Church, but it will be well worth stopping in for a moment. There is no fee to tour the church, but there was an elderly lady that explained a little about this still-functioning church with donation box by the exit. There is a bunch of history and lots of character in this... More

St. Peter's Church, in St. George's, Bermuda, is the oldest surviving Anglican church in continuous use outside the British Isles. It is also reportedly the oldest continuously used Protestant church in the New World. St. George's Town is the oldest surviving English settlement in the New World (1612). The original church (not surviving) was begun in 1612, I think, but... More

Beautiful. Very serene. Experienced some difficulty finding as we didn't have a map, but once there, it was definitely worth the visit.
