Delightful little church

Delightful little church tucked away in a tiny street, we found it by accident, it was lovely to step inside away from the crowds.

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.

The Church of St Lawrence is very close to the City Museum and its very well worth a visit. It has connections to William the Conqueror and its a tiny chapel, but once inside its very peaceful and there are some interesting artifacts to be found. Easily missed but well worth a visit.

This church was easy to miss, but was a nice start to my visit in Winchester. It was on the small side, which is why I called it a chapel instead of a church. There are tombs all over and it is fun to read the names and descriptions and to see how many people that crammed into one crypt.

Just off of High Street, and any time the Bishop visits the cathedral, they have to first go into this church. This was the area of the original Norman Castle and the chapel may have been William the Conquerors private chapel.

A tiny church situated in a alleyway right in the centre with buildings jammed next to it, St Lawrence has a beautiful interior. Full of atmosphere and easily missed. Despite the impressiveness of the Cathedral round the corner, this is actually Winchester's parish church.

Tranquil space away from the shopping bustle outside. Look out it as a venue for the Young Musician series of lunchtime concerts; part of the Winchester festival, first week in July.

Although thousands of people walk past his church every week, it is still probably one of Winchester's hidden gems. Located between The Butter Cross in the High St. and The Square, leading to the City Museum (another gem), St. Lawrence's is well worth a few minutes of your time. I have visited when there has been a flower festival on... More
