Our visit coincided with a huge teenage tour group from overseas so we had plenty of time to watch the interaction between staff , stewards and rather loud youngsters.

I may be biased as this is now my adopted house of worship - and where I recently got married - but it is a truly elegant building with fantastic colonial architecture and a rich history. Feel the revolution era come to life, as well as a modern home to a great community!!

Fantastic venue rich in history. The staff were very helpful and music was delightful. Some cab drivers don't know how to get there.

This beautiful Anglican Church is worth the visit. We had been walking and we wanted to sit down and relax a little. We were greeted at the door and asked if we needed any assistance.

I am so glad that we visited Christ Church. You can make a donation if you wish, which hopefully everyone will give what they can to keep this lovely and historic Church in great condition.

The history of this church alone is a story but to see it and actually experience a wedding ceremony here was amazing.

Stopped here when taking a little time to walk around historic Philadelphia. This church is very pretty and it's amazing to be where many of the Founding Fathers worshipped. I found the tour guide that speaks there to be very informative. Definitely worth a stop.

Went as part of a tour group. The docent would spoke to us was very good, he really gave us a great appreciation for the beauty of the building and the history of famous members. Had not realized that the building is still a very active congreation, being constantly used.

I was in town for business and listened to the talk and it is cool to know the history of such an old church. And it is cooler to know how many of the founding fathers attended services there. It is well maintained and definitely worth the stop.
