If you are looking for a place to see all of Bermuda from every direction this is the place for you. Go to the church office and pay the $3 to get access to go up the tower and see the million $ view. It's better to go during the weekdays because it gets busy. If you cannot walk up the hundreds of steps the interior of the church is well worth visiting and the stain glass windows are amazing. My favorite is the many different pillows for kneeling in each of the pews.

The islands enjoy lots of churches and well reserved.
There is a long street called Church Street because it has at least 6 churches.

Hamilton seems to be short on touristy sights (but long on shopping), but the Cathedral of the Most Holy Trinity is beautiful. The tower is especially interesting and offers the best overall view in Hamilton. It is accessed by a tight and steep climb via a stone spiral stairway. The exact number of steps eludes me, but I'm thinking I was told between 157 and 180? In any case it is many, many steps with little room nor opportunity to pass in the very narrow stairway, but a good adventure; albeit a bit stuffy on a hot day. LOL Initial access if gained by a visit to the Cathedral office and a modest payment of $3 per head. Visitors are then conducted to the out of the way tower stairway entrance and left to explore until posted closing time. No guides or other time restraints necessary. have fun!!

This building is not the most architecturally unique etc. The fascination with this building is its sheer age. With the surrounding cemetary having tombs of 200-300 years old and still in "Fair" condition its a site to see. This is located very near the main area of Hamilton and definitely worth walking into.

Again the building has a lot of native cedar and due to its age has the most amazing smell. Staff were very friendly and chatty. There are many of these churches on the island and i felt that well all of them were beautiful in the sheer fact of their age they werent the most impressive churches i've ever seen (Berlin, Munich etc) with that being said i always enjoy discovering them and seeing what is the norm in every country i go to. This church didnt disappoint and no charge for admission.

This is an active Anglican Cathedral run by a very well liked and respected bishop. I am not an Anglican but I have been there a few times. I would not consider it a tourist location but it is in Hamilton and I have enjoyed the services when I have been there.

This is a very pretty church in the middle of Hamilton. Traditional stained glass and pipe organ. The tower climb is a must. For $3 each, you ascend extremely narrow winding stairs to the top of the tower which is an observation deck where you can see 360 degrees for miles. Worth the climb (but be careful going back down!).

If you're walking around Hamilton, this church is a must see. Located in the center of the city surrounded by beautiful parks the Most Holy Trinity towers above the nearest buildings. Inside is like an art museum. The murals and stone glass are beautiful. If you get there in the morning, you can climb the tower from the inside and get the most breathtaking views of the city.

It is a bright and cheery cathedral, the staff we met were very friendly and we left with a welcome feeling. It is a hill up from the main part of town which is deceptive and in the heat and humidity you might wish you had taken it more slowly - across the road is a supermarket where you can get a drink - but then you sit peacefully in a pew and see the sun coming through the glass windows and the walk is worth it. I might have liked some more information, but then this is primarily a place of worship and not an attraction.

Wow! It's amazing that a building like this exists on this small island. I was disappointed that there wasn't a guild or volunteer to ask questions of, and the little gift shop wasn't open on Saturday morning. But, that's nothing when you take in the beauty of this holy place.

This church is truly stunning in almost every way. I love the neo-Gothic style, copper roof, beautiful stained glass windows, and the lovely stone and wood work. Even if you're not a fan of churches, per se, this is worth a look. The history of the church is rather interesting as well...

The real treat is the Cathedral Tower. That said, it is 155 steps to the top. It is claustrophobic - if you're going up or someone is coming down, it's likely that one of you needs to turn around. The fit is tight, and 'panicky' folks will need to summon the courage to get to the top, and possess at least some fitness. There are only two landings, and when I was there they were both pretty dark. I, myself, was 'uncomfortable' yet determined to get to the top. The staircase is primarily spiral and then regular stairs. *However, once up to the top the view and photography are truly breathtaking.* The church is free - to climb the tower is $3.00 for adults (seniors and students are $2.00, children 5 and under are free as I recall) - well worth it, believe me.

There is a nice little gift shop, and you can purchase beverages. The volunteers are very nice and polite. When I was there it was hot and humid so water was imperative - at least for me. Even if you decide that getting up to the top is not for you, the church itself is worth the visit. If you are in / around Hamilton I would recommend *not* bypassing this landmark. There was no service taking place when I was there, thus I could just take my time walking around before venturing up to the top. Once up there I stayed for roughly a half-hour. It was a beautiful day, and the view and photos were outstanding. Hopefully the photos will give you a decent appreciation of what you will find here. And, some kind folks took my photo :-) And, going down always seems easier than getting up!

This is really a nice church - check it out if you're in this vacinity of Bermuda!
