“The view from the top is a must-see”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

Climb to the top of the tower and you'll be amazed. When we got there the tower was closed, but the wonderful caretaker (former mayor?) let us up anyway! Such hospitality!

“Such a Beautiful Church”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

I loved visiting this church. It is in all of the guide book and for very good reason. The charm and beauty are so much like churches in New York or Europe, but it definitely had its own unique quality that makes one realize you're in Bermuda.

“Historic, But underwhelming”
Reviewed April 2, 2013

The atmosphere in the cathedral is sombre, but there is a feeling that if anyone is in the church, they really don't want you there.

“Lovely”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

The church is quite lovely inside. While we were there, a sight-seer asked me where the stairs to the tower were. I had to search for a bit to find them, as the access to the staircase is through a tiny door. There is a warning on the door that state that there are many steps up to the top (if I remember correctly, well over 100). Although we didn't go up to the top, I understand that the view is really amazing.
There is no fee, and no one met us at the front door, although there was a sign that they suggest that you leave a donation.

“Calling all Architecture Buffs”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

This Angelican Church is in the heart of Hamilton, and is a treasure trove of beautiful and distinctive architecture. It is a stunning place to see and enjoy - from the fabulous stained glass windows to the wonderful stone and wood work adorning the church. The history of the church itself, is most interesting. Many go up in the tower (155 steps) however we did not experience this ourselves. Several others have told us that the views from the top, overlooking the city and the harbour, are incredible. We happened into the church one day during a choir rehearsal, so enjoyed sitting and enjoying the serenade and the marvelous echos in the vast sanctuary, before moving on to more sightseeing A most enjoyable experience.
