My husband and I thought this historic church would be worth a visit but was disappointed. The suggested $5 pp donation was definitely not worth the value we got but it is going to sustaining it for future. It is a little distance from the...More
This is a beautiful [piece of architecture and the docents are attentive and knowledgeable. The church is situated in a full block of buildings, but once you step foot on the grounds and inside the building, you are taken back to another time. The pews...More
Linda was our guide at Christ Church and as a long time parishioner, she was a wealth of information. A friend recommended this free tour and we are so glad we went. This lovely church is seeped in history both past and present. I highly...More
No matter your religion, take time out to visit the oldest church in Philadelphia. The historic significance and original items within the church are amazing. The baptismal fountain is still on load from England from 600 years ago. Tour guides are on duty to tell...More
In keeping with its puritanical past, the church is functional, serene and very tranquil to the soul. In addition, we were extremely lucky as a lady who spent some time at Worcester College in Oxford studying art history took a liking to us and spent...More
This church dates from 1695 and has had many notable worshippers in its congregation. Ben Franklin is interred in the burial yard. The church follows the Episcopalian tradition, the inheritor of the Anglican tradition in Americas. It has played a prominent role in the life...More
We were in and out in about 5 minutes. The staff wasn't interested in explaining anything because they were getting ready for a large school group that was getting ready to enter. You could definitely pass on this and not miss a thing.
This is a little out of the way from the other attractions but if you're looking to take a walk, stop by. Two signers of the declaration, Morris and Wilson, are buried here. Admission is free and they have docents who answer questions and tell...More

I don't have an exact address, but as you can see in previous posts, Google is your best friend! As for touring it on your own, yes! I don't recall if they even have formal tours, but there was a caretaker (or a very nice gentleman who looked over the gift shop - which is right in the entrance as you walk in). This gentleman came into the church part and started striking up conversations with the visitors. He was very knowledgeable about the history and whatnot. There was no fee to pay to get in, but they did have donation boxes set up for you if you wished to contribute. It was interesting, and if you can get the caretaker involved with answering a question or two, then it is a very enriching experience.
