OK so this is one for the ardent royalists or those in love with Victorian design. We are neither but have to admit there is a certain wow factor in the explosive combo of Albert's ghastly bad taste and all the royalist kitsch.

Fantastic church with exhibition of photo's of royal family, even has Queen Victoria's original chair in it. Mountbatten family plaques in church and grave in cemetery. So much history for a village church.

Cycling my way to Osborne House called into the Church tea room £2.30 for a cup of tea and a slice of home made cake. Unbelievable value and delicious too! Yet to visit the church but it looks fantastic set against the back drop of the river.

In this area, this is a most spectacular attraction. Prince Albert had a hand in designing this church, reflective of his German heritage. Victoria and Albert loved the Isle of Wight and it is a shame this is so far from the traveled path most visitors take. It is definitely worth your visit and there should be a nice couple... More

This was an absolute delight. Hidden off the main road is such a beautiful, interesting church, that it alone was worth the journey to whippingham. Stunningly beautiful with so much history made easily accessible by our guide Mary. Mary was simply brilliant at her job, she welcomed us, judged the ages of our family and tailored the tour perfectly. Lots... More

It is part of the history of osbourne house so worth a visit, guides are available to speak to. Church hall is a small tea room, it is cheap and gifts are available to buy.

Most people miss this delightful church as it is so close to Osbourne House. The outside looks more like the continent than the Isle of Wight. Try and take the time to see inside and hopefully there will be one of their excellent guides who bring to life the history of the church. so full of royalty including the tombs... More

Lovely Church, possibly one of the most beautiful on the Isle of Wight. The spire is beautiful and the ladies who were running the church stall at the back were very nice and friendly. A true beauty.

Many thanks to Janet for our impromptu tour ... A truly knowledgeable guide whose enthusiasm is second to none. Don't miss this church on your way to Osborne House (actually, it's a real shame that English Heritage don't do more to promote the surrounding places of interest).
