St. Peter's Church, St. George

#1 of 8 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.

  • Loved visiting this church. It, like the unfinished church, was smaller than I expected, but I have seen a lot of cathedrals and such because I love architecture, art, and history. We spent most of our time in the cemetery. It was interesting to see the grave markers and such. We shadowed a tour for a few minutes and learned some interesting tidbits. Admission to the outside is free...donations requested for entering.
  • Very pretty and interesting old Protestant church. It was built in the 1600's when the British first colonized Bermuda. Today, it's one of oldest churches with an active congregation. Definitely check out when exploring Bermuda.
  • Lovely church, interesting architecture, but for me, the visit was compelling because of the slave and free blacks’ grave yard to the left of the church. Graves date back to early 19th century (that I could see), and say a bit about the racial history and hierarchy of Bermuda at that time. Well maintained and beautiful cemetery.
  • I visited this church in 2013. Really like it.
  • A nice piece of history to explore
