A gem in the middle of town

This lovely church is located off the square. Well worth a visit. It is centuries old. Peaceful and quiet.

This charming church is in plain sight but if you blink you'll miss it. Go from the High Street through the archway next to the Butter Cross Monument. As you emerge from under the arches, this little church is on the left hand side. The history of the church is available for you to read inside. Shutting the doors behind... More

Enter through a small side-street doorway and you're in what I believe is one of the most unusual churches in the country with its dimensions being square and just about seating 120 people. Still used and definitely worth a little of your time.

On the site of Williams the Conqueror's palace is this small church open for quiet contemplation. An unexpected oasis of calm in this bustling and popular city which provides a welcome refuge to sit in a calm and lovely setting,

Such a pretty church, just off the High Street. Modernised features. Very light and airy despite being quite small.

Fabulous old church with a significant past. It also has the most beautiful glass engrved doors and entrance vestibule by Tracey Sheppard, a renowned British Glass Engraver. Worth visiting

This little church is easily missed as there is only a small entrance among the shops. It is worth a visit as it is a very old church but still used and well cared for.

I visited this lovely little chapel and church with some friends in early May 2015. It was built in 1069 and was the chapel of William the Conqueror's Royal Palace, originally connected to his palace. This place is rich with history, I highly recommend you pop in and have a visit to discover the history for yourself.

Thank Jordanovichy
