Historic church on peaceful grounds, a nice place to relax or contemplate. The tower is the tallest structure in town and the top can be reached by five flights of very, very steep stairs, almost ladders. A nice view awaits on the roof at the top.

We got off our cruise ship and had a few hours to kill before our tour started - we then wandered the streets and came across this church. Upon entering we were greeted by a lovely woman named Sonia who demonstrated the baptismal font mechanism and allowed us to play the ancient pipe organ. Thankfully we both know keyboards so... More

I did a bike ride all over Nevis and got to see the many amazing sights and historical buildings. The St.George's Anglican Church is beautiful, so pretty and has incredible archictectural features. well worth a look!

Simple and elegant church with a historic graveyard going back to the 1600s. If the door is locked just lift up the bar to enter.

This is well worth the stop. Hard to believe this church was built so long ago and still stands and is used. Very interesting and the view is unbelievable from the church property.

Wonderful music. There is a super early service (around 6 am at a nearby tiny little church- off Thomas st.) but this is the one to see. The choir is wonderful. Dress appropriately and take a fan. I would not want to be in flip flops and a bathing suit for this service. Lovely!

If you like a little history then pay St Georges a visit, it's just a short walk from the centre of Basseterre and you wont be disappointed

We went there the Sunday while we were on vacation and absolutely loved it. I do suggest that you dress up because everyone else does dress very nice for church (like suits, dresses, and hats) and bring a fan because it is very hot in that church! Still great experience and everyone was very nice and welcoming!

We were walking around Basseterre and bumped into the church Bishop who said "Would you like to see the church?" His cell phone rang and he handed his keys to us and say "go ahead and open the church." Glad we did. He gave us a personal tour and offered anecdotes about the history of the church and congregation. Although... More
