Unfinished Cathedral, St. George

3.6
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites in St. George
Explore Unfinished Cathedral 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.

  • It's odd that the Trip Advisor listing refers to this as a "cathedral"--everything in Bermuda calls it the "Unfinished Church." It's just a few minutes walk outside the main downtown area of St. Georg...  more »
  • Walking distance from our Inn . It was very impressive. We got lucky and a priest was there and it was open so we got to walk the grounds . A beauty  more »
  • This cathedral definitely is interesting. Evidently, it is a result of congregation squabbles back in the 1900 century nd lack of funding. Storms have caused it to be unsafe, so we were not able to wa...  more »

  • A short hike up the hill from the ferry and just under halfway to tobacco beach. It has an interesting and sad story. A wonderful it still remains intact as it is. Sadly now needs to be gated off for safety and protection. Enjoy a Clark Gridwald moment here.
  • Very cool place. Amazing architecture. Site is currently closed inside (you can't walk through it) but you can get a good look up close and all around it. There aren't any extra frills, just an unfinished Church. But, if you are in St George's, go check it out for sure!
  • This was on my list of things to see while in Bermuda. I loved it. Not much to look at if you aren't into architecture, art + history, or ruins. Good to visit enroute to Tobacco Bay from St. George's marketplace. We stopped for a few minutes to take in the experience and read the exhibit sign. Didn't go inside. It was actually smaller than I expected, so far as churches go.
  • Hard to get excited about a relatively recent building that was abandoned before it was finished. More surprised that the land and stone hasn’t been reclaimed for use. It’s a nice stopping point between town and Tobacco Bay, though.
  • Closed for safety reasons but still a lot to see from the outside. Beautiful site!
