This is a sweet and beautiful church with a really calm quiet atmosphere just off the high street. Interesting history of priests and donors, still in use.

We came across this little church by accident. It is rumoured to be built on what was the chapel of William the Conqueror's palace. A lovely little church and well worth seeing.

I have passed this by without realising it was there until I read a potted history of Winchester! I think there were lots of tourists standing in front each time I went passed , well that's my excuse! What a haven of peace whereas all outside is very busy. One of its claims to fame is the doctor who looked... More

Having read other people's reviews of St Lawrence Church we were glad it is so easy to find. The love and care of the people for whom this is their spiritual home is clearly evident.

It's a little gem of a church which, despite being on one of the busiest shortcuts in Winchester (from the High Street to the Cathedral and close to several cafe bars), is easily overlooked because it's set back into the adjoining buildings.

The fact that this place contains almost a thousand years of history gives me goose bumps every time I visit. Very humbling.
