Nice little stop while seeing the sights in Philadelphia, You can sit in the pew where Washington sat as well as Benjamin Franklin. Some of the city founders are buried in the church and there is a small graveyard outside where some of the signers are buried. Neat little bit of history.

A beautiful historical church. We visited on a quiet weekday afternoon and had the place to ourselves. It was nice to have something of an unanticipated private tour with more information than one would likely normally get on a busy day. We enjoyed an extended conversation on Ben Franklin and historic Philadelphia churches. There's a small but well stocked gift... More

This is a very historic was interesting to hear about the early members and the important persons buried inside this church. Equally interesting that it is still an active parish.

It was encouraging to be reminded of our forefathers and their love of Jesus Christ, their church and the history they left for our nation. The church is awe inspiring and like most things we toured very accessible. It was a real honor to have made this trip

We walked across the street from our Hostel and into the Christ Church and must have stayed there for about 30 minutes talking to Tish - one of the volunteers at the church. She was so knowledgeable, so friendly, and able to answer our many, many questions.....we learn't so much. And got to sit in George Washington's pew while we... More

Since this church is on Market Street and near the historical area, I recommend stopping in for a quick visit for anyone who loves history. The church is where George Washington, Benjamin Franklin, and Betsy Ross attended. Its interesting because the previous priests are buried right under the church so you are actually walking on top of their graves. There... More

Sitting in Washington's pew and seeing how he and the other members of the colonial America spent their time, seeking the guidance for the way forward made the historical versions of the figures much more human.
