Calmness and peace for five minutes

A charming example of good architecture to create a feeling of comforting welcome, even if you do not hold strong religious views.

This church was Rebuilt after being bombed in World War 2. It has now risen to become a minster. Peace and tranquility in the middle of a busy city. Parking is not free though. However it can be accessed via free parking at park and ride at Milehouse and Coypool.

A wonderful evening listening to an excellent orchestra with a superb choir all in aid of a well deserving children's charity. Coffee and nibbles provided by the volunteers making the perfect experience in this marvellous building full of history.

A beautiful historic church situated in the heart of Plymouth. My daughter and I were married here. The stain glassed windows are beautiful. Have attended many times for weddings and funerals.

Beautiful, historic medieval church with some interesting buildings behind it (Abbey and Prysten house), also several stained glass windows by the historic, talented duo John Piper and Patrick Reyntiens.
