This is the church that George Washington attended from time to time, riding up from Mt. Vernon. Robert E. Lee also attended. You have to remember that Virginia is the South -- so all the plusses and minuses of our history are present here. If...More

Very nice restoration, and I found a nice quiet pew to sit in for a while by myself. Odd to see a few old grave sites in the yard

This was my go to church when visiting the area but no more. I will find another church. There is not value in removing history. Really disappointed.

Start the $20 walking tour at the HQ of Historic Alexandria with a chatty docent who ends up at Washington's pew at her own parish church, a charming building with memorials also to Robert E Lee.

We recently attended a Sunday morning service while in town for the day and were impressed by the sermon and music as well as the friendliness of the parishioners. If I lived in Alexandria, I would be a regular worshipper at Christ Church. Beautiful and...More

Radical leftists running the church wish to erase history. Utterly shameful that the first President of the United States who attended services here for 20 years would be disrespected. I will never set foot in this church... More

There is street parking, We walked from our hotel. Another option is using the free trolley that runs up and down King Street and walking about two blocks.
