It is a very nice church knowing that every American President with the exception of John F. Kennedy and Barack Obama, have been inside this church. The downside was that there was no tour guide to show every thing.

Enjoyed services in this historic Church -- one that honors Virginians George Washington and Confederate General Robert E. Lee. Lovely building.

This church came alive through Tony's wonderful narrative. Robert E Lee christened here and George Washington worshipped here! It is such a beautiful, calm, serene space. Painted white, with old crystal chandeliers, I loved it. A must visit in Alexandria.

He walked us along the lovely streets of Alexandria, pointing out homes of historical value, such as the home of George Washington, Carlyle House, and the original apothecary, now a museum. Jared is a wonderful young man, laid back, great humour, takes... More

During my visit to Alexandria, Virginia, I decided to stop and see this church. It was stunning. The people I spoke with knew a lot about the new and old history. I suggest you go give this a quick look!

I've lived in Alexandria for 37 years, and I take every out of town guest to Christ Church. George Washington was a member here, and purchased his own pew. It is clearly marked and my guests enjoy sitting there. The wavy glass in the windows proves they are original. Please leave a donation so this historic church can continue to... More

It's a beautiful, historic (pre Revolutionary War) church with an active congregation and spirited worship. We were made to feel very welcome.
