Located right in the heart of Kingstown on Backstreet is The St George's Cathedral! The historic building has glass stained windows,a verdant church yard with gravestones of prominent Vincentians citizens
The organ that accompanies the choir is booming and traditional
The pews are sturdy and well kept. A picturesque setting

If you visit the cathedral, don't ignore the graveyard. The headstones are interesting, the flowers on the graves are so much more colourful than in England, and there's a resident colony of Cattle Egrets which inhabit one corner. The cathedral itself is of course a place of calm and restfulness amidst the life of Kingstown.

As others have said you get a pleasant welcome from the verger who was more than happy to point out interesting aspects and / or answer questions. If you are into such things I'd say it's worth a visit and look out for the stained glass window and the chandelier.

A lovely cool building, very welcoming. The large stained glass window to the right of the altar was commissioned by Queen Victoria on the birth of her grandson. But the artist put the angel in red!! The Queen objected, as angels should always be in white. She thought it was a bad omen and didn't want it in England, so gave it to St Vincent

We found my great grandfathers gravestone and a baptismal font in his memory as he had been the Arch Deacon of St Vincent and St Lucia at the turn of the 20th century. We attended the church service on the sunday and met Dean Patrick Mackintosh. We were made very welcome. The service was very well attended even at 7.30 am!
