Yes, we do appreciate the $1.00 per person suggested donation. Kids love to put their dollar in the box in the Tower. The volunteer Bruton Guides enjoy talking with visitors. Thank you!

A beautiful early 18th century church that is still an active parish. Lots of history. Very informative "tour guides" that I believe are parishioners.

They are and they have a lot of knowledge! We have just opened a Heritage Center a block and a half west of the church, next to our book and gift shop. Look for the Episcopal flag! Please stop in and say hello.

The service you mention is every Wednesday at 11:00 a.m. in the church: Holy Eucharist with healing prayers. All are welcome. I'm glad you could attend, and thank you for this review.

This free place was the best place we visited. Friendly guides, well versed in the long history of this iconic Church. Check out the plaques on the walls, you will be amazed at the names there

I know time is limited when traveling so I appreciate your visit to Bruton Parish Church, and your tip for others to see the plaques. They have names that pre-date the USA! Thank you for this review.

In almost every one of my visits to Williamsburg, I try to take in one of the free concerts at Historic Bruton Parish Church. It is a fine old church with a welcoming attitude! Recommended!!

Glad that you made Bruton Parish part of your visit to Colonial Williamsburg. Yes, entry is included with the pass. But a pass is not required to enter! Thank you.

Nice place, and as real as it gets. Not a typical tourist stop, although you will enjoy seeing it. Beautiful wood work.
