We had a chance to tour with a wonderful guide, who told us about the history of the building. We enjoy sitting in George Washington's pew.

A short walk off king street. Church, gift shop, grave yard and lots of history. Collection box for donation. Welcoming hostess was an excellent guide.

Christ Church in Alexandria is seeped in history having been completed in 1773. Sadly I actually learned more about the church and accompanying burial grounds after I returned home. I would like to go back now that I have a little more knowledge and revisit....More

Christ Church is a beautiful example of Colonial architecture. Alexandria was Robert E. Lee's home town and this was his church.

Our guide was fabulous and had many fascinating facts to share about Christ Church's history. It is lovingly restored and is still an active church today. A donation is appropriate to give since there were no entrance fees.

See George Washington and Robert E Lee's pews and a period grave yard. It is reminiscent of Kings Church in Boston. Another Christopher Wren creation and one of the oldest churches in the area. No tours, but open to public viewing.

This is a must-see location in Old Town, especially if you're lucky enough to time your visit to when the sanctuary is open and a docent is available. The docents are incredibly nice, super knowledgeable, and great at making history interesting for any young people...More

Very inviting place to visit - a docent explained the history and pointed out various interesting details. Also the areas outside are well maintained and deserve time.

Visited by presidents and citizens alike, Christ Church isn't just "rooted in history." It MADE History. After service in 1775, Washington stood in its courtyard speaking out against British tyranny. A few short decades later, Robert E. Lee was asked to resign from the U.S,...More

No visit to Alexandria would be complete without a visit to one of the oldest churches in continental America. So many historical 'greats' have worshiped here, including George Washington. Come see the pews which have seated those leaders and who have led the many changes...More

There is street parking, We walked from our hotel. Another option is using the free trolley that runs up and down King Street and walking about two blocks.
