St. George's Cathedral, Georgetown
(4.3/5 based on 190+ 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.

  • The Cathedral is lit white in British colonial style and is half a kilometre from the city centre. Outside the church there are lawns and one day went to horses and grazed on the lawns, something rare sight! I think that the Cathedral is the city's most beautiful works!

  • St George's Cathedral is very beautiful and I hope the planned restoration goes ahead to restore it to its former glory.
