Right in the centre of Winchester shopping and close to the Museum and Cathedral. Check for Services and Carol concerts - I think this is the oldest church about Winchester

This is a beautiful & very peaceful little church, tucked away near the Butter Cross - a perfect place to sit & have a moment of tranquillity away from the city's bustle.

What an intriguing little church. It is tucked away around a corner near the butter cross and easily missed. Steeped in history - probably one of William the Conqueror's chapels. It has survived many disasters such as Plague and fire.

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.

This tiny but popular church is easy to miss but do try to visit, the flowers are usually beautiful and there is a golden glow about this Holy place, if you do not visit the Cathedral please try to come here.

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. And the well-preserved history of the church is less overwhelming than is the case with so many cathedrals and larger parish churches.
