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.

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

Washington went to church here when he was in the area. His pew is still there (along with Gen. Lee's). This is a beautiful piece of Early American history.

Just to know some of our forefathers went to church here is amazing. It is a beautiful building inside and out and has so much history.

A very interesting place, loaded with history. The tour guides were terrific. Would highly recommend. Although one tour guide made an unnecessary crack about President Trump that we didn't appreciate. Otherwise very interesting.

Christ church is located on N. Washington St. The trolley stops on Main Street and from there is a short walk to the church. I arrived after the tour started. The tour guide and the visitors were inside the church and seated by the time...More

A nice church with very pleasent and helpful staff. Have not attended church services here but have attended several other events. Easy access but parking can be hard to find and it is expensive.

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.
