My father was rector from 1954-1971 - the church as been thoroughly updated structurally and restored with handicapped access. The tour is wonderfully informative with volunteers, the campus including the Mia Lin designed Queen Anne Square, Honeyman Hall, the Goelet garden and original cemetery looked fantastic. It was a great moment to revisit an important 18th century building and a... More

For a voluntary, suggested donation of $5 (yes, that's $5!), you get an exceptional tour of a very historic structure! Our docent, Harle Tinney, was an exceptional guide explaining the fascinating history of the church! A highlight was getting to sit in the pew used by both George Washington and Queen Elizabeth during their respective visits! The stained glass windows... More

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.
