Aside from the historical luminaries who worshiped here, the interior is amazing and on a nice day, the windows let in so much light which enhances the experience. There are guides there who are more than happy to tell you whatever you wish to know...More

We stopped in hoping the rain would stop, we sat in same box as George and Martha Washington. Walked around where most of the founding fathers worshiped. So very glad we stopped. William White, founder of the episcopal church, is buried under the altar.

We attended Sunday Service at Christ Church as part of a modest congregation. The Service was fine but unremarkable and the church itself was a good example of a typical protestant building. It was only when you let your imagination fly that it became memorable....More

When you step inside you feel serenity. The church has a simple elegance. Additionally, there is a small outside area behind the church with benches where you can enjoy a respite under the shade from the trees. There are also a number of old tombs...More

This Colonial-era Church is classically beautiful! Just two blocks north of Chestnut street, this is a must-see venue for any history buff. Spend an hour to see this silent beauty.

This church is very simple . The interior is denuded. I did not see anything interesting. The exterior was more interesting with its red bricks. What more can i say. I was not impressed.
