Beautiful historic church. Be sure to also see the cemetery in the rear of the church. Headstones date back to the 1700's. There is a separate area for people of color who were buried there. A fabulous history of Bermuda in within this location.

This was one attraction I really wanted to see whilst in St George so I was pleased that the local bus terminated just up the street from it. There are a few steps up to the entrance doors but nothing too steep. The interior of the church is full of wooden beams; posts & pews with rays of natural sunlight... More

Visit the oldest church in the Western Hemisphere. At 402 years old, St. Peters is truly a landmark in faith, endurance and a hallmark of St. Georges. A beautiful old church with artifacts hundreds of years old. A tremendous history in which Queen Elizabeth, Prince Edward, Princess Diana and Prince Charles all have visited.Make sure you visit as well

If you're in St. George's this is a must stop. We took a tour of facility and looked at the books in the back of some of the famous visitors to the church. We then walked through the cemetery outside and were surprised to find a US senator buried back there.

I love historic churches. This one didn't disappoint. It dates from the early 1600's and is thought to be the oldest Anglican church in the Western Hemisphere to be in continual use. The interesting font inside is over 500 years old and was brought over from England. We had a docent that showed us around and answered our questions. She... More

This is a lovely, historic church! There is often a volunteer guide to offer a few historic details and explanations.

This church is very old yet still in use today. A lot of history. There is a graveyard that is around 3 sides and it is nice to read some of them.

Set in historic St. Georges, it is a must visit if you fortunate to visit beautiful Bermuda. Take the time to wander around this great east end time, have tea and visit St. Peter's Church. It is a step back in time.

I was amazed at the steeps to the entrance of St Peter's Church. There were to many to count,but once on top you can see a lot of the town of St. George. The church itself was breathe taking. It is the oldest church on the Eastern hemisphere still standing. It was built in the 1600"s? The grave yard to... More
