Unfinished Church

From the way it looks, the Unfinished Church was to be a grand place of worship, meant to replace the St. Peters Church that was destroyed by a storm in 1874. However, after great progress had been made, further improvements kept being delayed until the idea was largely abandoned. Today, the church is in ruins, after a 1926 hurricane destroyed much of the progress that was made since 1874.


Guests are always free to explore the area around the church and to observe from the outside. Exploring the inside is sometime not allowed due to structural damage. Call the Bermuda Department of Parks to check the current state of the Unfinished Church.

Staying Close

St. George is a good option for those wishing to visit Unfinished Church, because travelers to this area of Bermuda will have easy site access during their time there. The area around this site remains relatively quiet, perhaps because there is such a modest selection of places to stay in the vicinity.
