Connections with the family of Thomas More's daughter, Margaret Roper. The family vault is the final resting place of Margaret and her father's head!

St. Thomas More is said to be buried here. Its a small church and quite serene. Its a peaceful place to pray. There's an old cemetery at the back of the church which you can walk around.

This is like a proper old fashioned village church but in the town (nay city!). I've been to a few weddings and christenings here and found it a very pleasant building / institution. Nice higgledy piggledy gravestones and grassy bits to wander through.

Its quieter than the cathederal crypt, if you want a word with the boss.!. And that has to be pretty good for its location.

Beautiful old church. There has been a church on the site since 988a.d. This is the church which houses the tomb in which the head of St Thomas More is buried. Well worth a visit.
