Bruton Parish Church is open daily to visitors with or without a Colonial Williamsburg admission ticket. A donation of one dollar per person is gratefully accepted to go toward upkeep of the church and churchyard. This is the third building in the history of Bruton Parish, in continuous use since 1715. All are welcome to attend a brief service of noonday prayer during the week, and Sunday services, held at 7:30, 9:15, and 11:15 am and 5:30 pm. Bruton Parish Church is an active congregation of the Episcopal Church, therefore we close for tours during weddings, funerals or scheduled services.

The church is neat, in that the pews of George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, and other founding fathers are marked. I enjoyed the grounds and headstones. Services are still held at the church and free concerts are given on certain evenings.

We have been to a number of evening concerts here and they are lovely, particularly those by the university choirs. The interior is historic and beautiful -- worth seeing and experiencing.

Fascinating place to visit. This place can be seen in less than half an hour. Interesting place, but not much to see.

Yes, a half hour is plenty, and then if you wish to walk the paths in the churchyard, ask a Guide. Thank you!

We attended an evening choir concert at Bruton Parish, and it was magnificent. The choir was from a Catholic Church in Delaware, and they sang music from the past. This all-adult choir provided a free concert for any and all to enjoy!

I have visited this beautiful church many times over my lifetime and always find it interesting to hear its history and understand the part it played in the lives of our nations's founding fathers.

This church is very pretty to see. My cousins live in Williamsburg and they attend service here every Sunday. Imagine how you would feel sitting in this church knowing so many of our Presidents attended here.
