St. Georges Cathedral Tour

Take a tour to the world’s tallest freestanding wooden building at a height of 143 feet. The current structure is the third Church and second Cathedral of St. George’s erected near this site. The first Church was razed to the ground, the second collapsed due to weak foundations and this; the third one was built in 1892.

This is the main Anglican Church in Guyana, and is constructed from design by Sir Arthur Bloomfield, with the very strong Guyanese Greenheart wood and beautiful English Oak. Over the top of the Alter you will notice a Candelabra donated by Queen Victoria, which was later electrified. Also to note are the intricate stained glass windows and the many scrolls on the walls depicting a great part of Georgetown’s early history.
