Bombed during World War II, St George’s Garrison Church survives as an evocative ruin with recently conserved mosaics, and a modern canopy roof, now available for all to enjoy.


Open again on Sunday mornings

Visitors can again enter St George's.

We are delighted that revisions to HM Government's advice and Regulations mean that we can again open our gates to visitors. St George's being an open space in which social distancing can be observed, please do wander in to enjoy the peaceful gardens, study our exquisite mosaics and take in the significance of the memorials. From the 24th May 2020 we are open from 10 am until 1 pm on Sunday mornings - to make arrangements for any special visit or requirements please email us -

Please note that it is necessary to observe current Regulations - visitors within a household must stay 2 meters away from other visitors and from our people. We reserve the right to restrict entry to control numbers in the unlikely event this is necessary.

Please consider becoming a Friend of St George's and check the website for future events when they can take place.
