We had a chance to tour with a wonderful guide, who told us about the history of the building. We enjoy sitting in George Washington's pew.

Christ Church is a beautiful example of Colonial architecture. Alexandria was Robert E. Lee's home town and this was his church.

Our guide was fabulous and had many fascinating facts to share about Christ Church's history. It is lovingly restored and is still an active church today. A donation is appropriate to give since there were no entrance fees.

See George Washington and Robert E Lee's pews and a period grave yard. It is reminiscent of Kings Church in Boston. Another Christopher Wren creation and one of the oldest churches in the area. No tours, but open to public viewing.

This is a must-see location in Old Town, especially if you're lucky enough to time your visit to when the sanctuary is open and a docent is available. The docents are incredibly nice, super knowledgeable, and great at making history interesting for any young people...More

Very inviting place to visit - a docent explained the history and pointed out various interesting details. Also the areas outside are well maintained and deserve time.

There is street parking, We walked from our hotel. Another option is using the free trolley that runs up and down King Street and walking about two blocks.
