The main altar at St George's Garrison Church, Woolwich

Book Tickets Online


Bombed during both the First and Second World Wars, St George's Garrison Church in Woolwich is both an evocative ruin and a contemporary spiritual space of great peace and charm.

Designed by Thomas H Wyatt in an Italian-Romanesque style, the Church was built between 1862-63 to serve the Royal Artillery in Woolwich. It was partially rebuilt following its near destruction in WWII, with a contemplative garden and modern canopy being added to the restored mosaics.

Today, it is run by a local group, the Woolwich Garrison Church Trust, which is committed to making it available for all to visit and enjoy.

Directly opposite the Barracks in Woolwich, it is open every Sunday and for special events with the support of volunteers.
