“Much grander than expected”
Reviewed February 21, 2013

This is the place that made me realize there must have been quite a bit of money around Philadelphia, even back in the 1700's. I know it was the nations biggest and most important city, so I guess this church was built to reflect that. It is similar in many ways to Old North Church in Boston, but everything about it oozes wealth in a way the Boston churches don't. The helpful guide told us where Franklin and Washington sat, and gave us interesting information about the design (meant to be in Wren style) and the patronage of the church. A must visit place.

“Fabulous guide”
Reviewed February 18, 2013

There is so much history in this church. It was a great experience. The man working there was really good at talking to my son and getting him involved. He made sure that my son understood how history affects us today. He really made the visit so educational.

“History in Old City”
Reviewed February 11, 2013

This is a lovely, historic church and, as a bonus, the cemetery is quite atmospheric. Don't just peek at it from the outside; enter and plunge into the experience.

“Beautiful church”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

It is a must see if you are visiting Philly.
It is located in the heart of the Old City and it is history in itself. We did not attend any service there, just stopped by to sight see. The inside is beautiful so are the grounds around.
