St. George's Cathedral, Georgetown
(4.3/5 based on 200 reviews on the web)
Admire St. George's Cathedral, the main cathedral in the capital city and one of the tallest wooden buildings in the world. The Anglican church, built 1892, is now the seat of the bishop of Guyana and a national landmark. Admire the imposing 43 m (143 ft) Gothic-style structure, designed by English architect Sir Arthur Blomfield. Built from native Greenheart wood, durable and insect-resistant, the historic white structure is an emblem of the city. Wander the decorated interior, filled with intricate stained glass, historic relics, and a large chandelier gifted by Queen Victoria. St. George's Cathedral is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our custom trip planner, Georgetown Edition.

  • Had read a comment wrong here, this is the Cathedral of wood, which is now in reform that can not enter.

  • one of the largest wooden churches apparently. Gives a good glimpse at the style of living in Guyana a few decades back. 
  • It's a pretty cool site in the heart of Georgetown. If you are in Georgetown you can go ahead and check it out.
