This is a beautiful unfinished Gothic Cathedral in historic St. George. It overlooks Tobacco bay. It is definitely worth a stop while in St. George

The Unfinished church is a must see while on the island of Bermuda. This historic church is full of rich history of the town of St. George a UNESCO site. I visit the grounds each time I am on t he island.

While you can't go into the unfinished cathedral, you can take pictures and look inside. It's worth stopping by if you're in St. George but don't expect to spend a lot of time there.

When you visit St Geeorge's make sure you stop by the unfinished church. It was planned as a replacement for St Peter's Church and construction was started in the 1870s. It was never completed for a variety of reasons including , infighting , financial problems and a damaging storm . It's a wonderful , mystical Gothic structure and the ruins... More

I was taking a different way back to Aunt Nea's inn when this unfinished cathedral showed up. I wonder why they did not finish it, or at least let someone buy it and build something else. It seems so empty and lost.

We walked up to the unfinished cathedral from St George's Club; a pleasant walk of about 15 mins or so. The cathedral itself can only be seen from the outside; it is in too dangerous a condition for people to be allowed inside. The history is interesting, but the place itself is difficult to get too excited about.

A very serene, beautiful unfinished piece of history. A short walk from the centre of St Georges. Lovely to take photos and read about why it was never finished, I am sure it would have been even more beautiful had it been.

We were on a bus tour of Bermuda and got to see this one of a kind place. I would love to know more about it but our tour guide said that it has been like this for as long as anyone can remember. If you're in town then go check it out!

This is what it is, an unfinished Church. Looks cool and it is an easy walk from city center. I would visit if you are already walking to beach. Not much to see.

The church is no longer available to walk around inside, but you can give yourself a self guided tour around the outside. There are plenty of opportunities to take photos
