Very interesting, so old. Cemetery had broken trees and debris from a storm but they were cleaning up. Worth visiting.

Built in 1609 and still going. Take a tour anytime and observe the English language as it was spoken in the 1600's and later.

Old churches are cool and this one is no exception, but what I loved more was their graveyard. The small and subtle details are overlooked, for instance, when standing in the silver room, with the entrance of the door behind you look out the window and down- There is a marble carved skull sticking out of the ground (don't worry,...

This church is the oldest, continuous church in the Western Hemisphere. It is beautiful and reverential. I highly recommend it.

My visitor used a stick and found steps difficult, and there were no instructions about how to get into the church from behind. We found the road that runs behind the graveyard but it is residents parking only and it was not possible to park even briefly to enable my visitor and myself to see inside the church ( ie... More

We visited this lovely church while in St. George and found it to be both beautiful and fascinating. There is no fee, but there is a donation box in which to place money. While there are many stairs to climb to go in from Duke of York Street, our cab driver dropped us off behind the church, where my husband,... More

Winner of the Trip Advisor Excellence Award for 2014 you can see why when you walk up the front steps and step into history. A 402 year old church that has seen explorers and royalty pass through its doors. A historic graveyard that dates back before the pilgrims and Revolutionary war. Its sometimes hard to fathom the history that has... More

This is a very famous church that has been featured within many TV shows. It's easy to find. While in St. George, simply walk down the main street and you'll see it! There is no fee but donations are appreciated. There is a donation box right when you enter the front door. Definitely mix in a tour of St. Peter's... More

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.
