#1 of 7 in Historic Sites in St. George
Visit the oldest Anglican church outside of the UK at St. Peter's Church, which makes up part of World Heritage-listed St. George Town. The Protestant church dates back to 1612, though some parts have been replaced or restored over the centuries. In 2012, the church celebrated 400 years of existence and received the title "Their Majesties Chappell" by Queen Elizabeth II. Admire the historical building's strikingly plain facade, its native cedar wood beams, and the simple, tranquil interior. Visit the church cemetery, where many notable Bermudians have been laid to rest throughout history.

  • This church is definitely worth a visit while in Bermuda. It is beautifully maintained and has friendly guides waiting to greet you. Spend some time reading the memorial plaques. They are a fun glimpse into society several hundred years ago and compelling tributes to the individuals they memorialize.
  • Just $2 per person and you can get amazed by this unique church. Oldest parts are dated to 1619! It is a real piece of history. You can go upstairs and look down from the balcony which was meant for slaves only. Don't miss the cemetery! We went off season and nobody else was there. That' the best way to enjoy such places..
  • it is the different church but good and friendly staff
  • If they had 10 stars, I would give I that rating. My wife and I just returned from St. George's after a week there. We are both into history and family lineage societies. This place is a gold mine of information !! Not only tracing the family lineages there, but the way it is laid out.
  • This is a very old and well-kept church. Definitely pass by and visit while in Bermuda. Everyone is super friendly.
