What a beauty. Lovely lovely Church, Old and with a super atmosphere inside. Spectacular art work all around you, and so old, so full of history… Great to visit. Also, the ladies that were working there are so nice and so helpful. Amazing place to visit in Chester

A fascinating dip into history, with a guide knew an awful lot about the church, religion and the history of the place. The architecture and structure were magnificent, the history was fascinating

Able to walk through the ruins, found by chance after walking up from the river. Very atmospheric. Worth a visit.

We found this by accident when walking through the park. I was amazed at the ruins and found the information very interesting and a little eerie seeing the coffin built high into the wall. The church itself was quiet and peacefully with beautiful windows.

Lovely place, lots of history and friendly volunteers. If I haven't gone to the amphitheatre I would have missed it.

Very calming and relaxing place. Even if you are not a religious person this church is totally worth the visit. You can even sit and have a coffee inside of the church (good cheap coffee btw!). I also bought a second hand book inside.

Didn't go in but the grounds were a lovely place to sit & relax. Also allowed my credit card cooled down from the wife's shopping spree
