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.

When visiting the beautiful town of St George's in Bermuda it is well worth taking time to visit this beautiful church which is full of social history. It is the oldest Anglican Church outside the United Kingdom. Some of the headstones date back 300 years, there is a poignant reminder of Bermuda's history when you enter the separate graveyard for...

If you can make it up the steps, it's a great church to visit with a whole lot of history. The woodwork, and cabinetry are exquisite. The loft where the black people stood, is a reminder of a black eye on history. Spent a lot of time inside just marveling at the workmanship

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.
