Walked up to the church from the Cruise ship terminal and shopping area. reminiscent of many old English churches. War memorial and attractive stained glass. When I visited there were pink ribbons decorating the pew ends for breast cancer awareness.

This was part of our drive by tour and we were given the history of the building. We stopped to take pictures since the building is so beautiful.

Beautiful architecture, beautiful wall painting! Bigger then you expect! Easy to find, you can spot the tower above the city of Basseterre!

The exterior with the tall tower is quite attractive. The interior is kind of pretty with an interesting ceiling design. The altar and stained glass added to the appeal of this church. It is the nicest church in St. Kitts and worth visiting. It isn't a long walk from the Circus area and allows you to see what other parts... More

The massive 158-year old tower of St George's Parish Church is open for people to climb for a donation whenever there's a cruise ship in town. The reward for the climb is not just the superb view over Basseterre (St George's tower on its hill still seems the tallest building in town), but travelling through rooms of Victorian paraphernalia -...

If you are by it stop and go in. It has a beautiful organ and some stain glass. No charge. I believe they take donations.

The church itself is quite interesting, but the tower is a must - entry is for a modest donation. It gives a superb view over Basseterre and the central mountains. We were lucky enough to visit on one of the rare days when Mt Liamuiga and the other peaks were all clear of cloud. The steps are quite steep, though,... More

the place was interesting. I learned how they made the wax tie dye, washed and hung it out to dry then made different items from the cloth.

They are really trying hard but need help: Basseterre is humid enough, but their non-ac rooms were too hot; you can really only concentrate in the air-con ones. They desperately need more artifacts too, as do the Nevis Museums.
