I have walked passed this church hundreds of times and finally went in to check it out. WOW, what an amazing church it is. They don't make them like it anymore. You should def plan on a 1/2 hour to walk around the inside.

The church is beautiful and the tour was short, but interesting. There were lots of little tid- bits of history that were fun to learn. Two glorious Tiffany stained glass windows!

What a beautiful place that has seen its list of historical figures. The staff provides free tours of the church with interesting historical facts about the church and the people who have been there including President Washington and Queen Elizabeth. It is a must see piece of history.

I stopped in late in the day and they were actually getting ready to close, but I had a few minutes to take a short walk inside and get a feel for the place. It's beautifully maintained with lots of history. I will make a point to arrive earlier next time so I can learn more about it. Parking is... More

Don't just take the tour, visit on a Sunday and attend the worship service. The service is meaningful especially when you pause to think about just how many have worshipped there and for how many years others have sat where you are sitting. Enjoy the physical building during the service and make sure to note some of the nautical "touches"... More

This is a Newport landmark and can be seen from the harbor as you approach the city from the sea. It is one of the most beautifully preserved colonial churches in New England. The graveyard is worth the visit with many famous people buried here. George Washington himself attended services here. Friendly guides.

The towering steeple through the trees gives one a feeling that a small country church rests behind the greenery. The closer we walked, the better views, photos and angles we viewed. Many various views of this structure speaks to the grandeur of this white, wood clad historical church. The history runs deeply. Inside, one could pause, reflect and think through... More

This is the oldest Episcopalian church in RI and it's history goes back to 1693. There is a tour guide to tell you the history of the building and show you around. Of special interest are the stained glass windows. We also liked looking around the church cemetary because of the age
