The Unfinished Church, St. George

3.8
#3 of 7 in Historic Sites in St. George
Explore The Unfinished Church a historic landmark of the town, only 15 minutes from the center of St. George. Many stories exist as to why the cathedral was never completed. The construction began in 1874, and was supposed to feature a Gothic façade. With no roof constructed, lush green grass grows where the church aisles should be and the support pillars have crumbled and are covered in mould. Despite the church's incomplete structure, it has been frequently used for wedding ceremonies in the past.

  • Getting there is simple, but expected to be able to take pictures and walk around.... surprise surprise, there’s no access. You can peek inside, take a few pics of the inside but that’s it. We were.....  more »
  • If you are making the trek to Fort St. Catherine's this is along the way, so you might as well stop. Very pretty, plague on right side of church states why it is unfinished. Can't access inside, but....  more »

  • This place looks so cool! If you are in Bermuda then this is a must see. Not only is it like a 7 min walk to good food places in town, but it looks so magical! We went late in the evening and we managed to take some great pictures ! We were basically the only people there.
  • Pleasant walk up to a historic folly. Interesting to see a quintessentially British style stone church sitting atop the hills overlooking a wonderful view of old St.George. Also interesting to read how the church came about and the reasons it was not completed due to the warring factions of the same congregation.
  • I feel there are more stories to tell about its history than what's on the plaque. The entire area needs a walking tour guide.
  • Though the interior of the ruins are no longer open to the public, the structure is truly spectacular. A great place to visit and take in the architecture and scenery. Please note, the interior has been deemed structurally unsound and has been closed as of June 2019. There are efforts to stabilize and reopen the interior grounds.
  • Nice landmark in Bermuda, we only viewed it from the road, didn't know if we were allowed to explore inside.
