We had a very informative tour of the church and the cemetery. Our guide gave great details about the individual windows and about Tiffany's relationship with the church. It is a beautiful church and very worth the visit!

Well out of town and probably not worth the extra effort. Burials of some of the many casualties of the Petersburg Civil War campaign

We were the only ones on the first tour so it was as if we had our own private tour of this historically beautiful place. Our tour guide was just a wealth of knowledge and had so many stories of the people that are buried there and the things that happened in the church and the petersburg area. The church... More

Having seen the stained glass windows in European cathedrals, I can certainly say that these are among the best I have ever seen. The attention to detail, the colors used, and the subject matter are just phenomenal. Blandford Church has a rich history, and our tour guide was quite knowledgeable. After the tour, we wandered around the cemetery looking at... More

The church is lovely, and the windows are beautiful. Unfortunately, we were there on a rainy day and didn't get to see them in their full glory. Access to the church is over an uneven brick walk, which may be difficult for some.

Very inexpensive tour with a docent. You'll get a headful of Civil War chatter - if you're not interested, tell the tour guide, but you can't escape it... the cemetery is huge. HUGE. Take comfy shoes. Take a camera.

The tour of the cemetery around Halloween is very educational and interesting, but do not expect scary. It's a fun night out.

I have never seen such amazing stained glass windows -- these are the real thing -- and the colors are gorgeous. The church is very important historically and imbued with a poignant sense of sadness and beauty. My guide in Blandford Church was wonderful - she knew her material and obviously loved the church as much as I did. Thoroughly... More

We took the official tour. One signs up at the reception center located on your left just as you enter the grounds. We paid $4.00 a person. Our guide, (I failed to obtain her name) was a lovely young African American lady. I was enthralled with her knowledge and her presentation of the history of the cemetery and church. By... More

My wife and I visited on April 16, 2015, as part of our Petersburg Museums Block Ticket. Interesting. Our guide, Pat, was nice.
