The Unfinished Church

Duke of Kent Street, St. George's

The impressive Gothic vestige that looms over the town of St. George's was begun in 1874 as a replacement for St. Peter's Church, which had fallen into a state of disrepair. Designed by William Hay, the Scottish-born architect who later drew the plans for Hamilton's cathedral, the St. George's church was abandoned in 1899 when near completion. The interior of the church is closed to the public as weathering has caused structural deterioration, however you may visit the grounds and view the inside through the arches. Special events and weddings take place inside the Unfinished Church through arrangements with St. Peter's, Their Majesties Chappell.
