A must to visit on a sunny day as the sun will illuminate the chapel and show off it's magnificence in full, quite simply a work of art and splendour that will make your jaw drop, although still an amazing place to visit in all seasons and weather conditions, try to plan your trip to view on a bright clear...

Everything in this place is beyond beautiful! The artistry is unque in comparison with any chapel or church within this era. It is truly a masterpiece! A work of dedicated and devoted love! Stunning expertise in every detail it is perfection. I cried. I was so moved by the experience and the touch of the holy unseen

I had heard about Watts Chapel here on tripadvisor and am so happy that we decided to make time to go and see it. Didn't have time for the gallery but the Chapel and memorial and graveyard were just gorgeous and peaceful as was the views all around.

A truly unique small chapel built by Mary Watts and the Compton residents at the turn of the century. Lavish and strange interior decoration and tile work decoration. Well worth a visit.

Was taken here by some friends and what a surprise! Never knew this little gem was here. If you love the Arts and Crafts movement you will love this place. Overtures of Art Noveau and a great way to spend half an hour. Nice little guide book available in side for a pound in the honesty box. The small size... More

I have taken my father here on quite a regular basis over the last couple of years. The staff are lovely, the food is varied and interesting and it is a lovely location. I would thoroughly recommend it.

This a beautiful and unspoilt chapel, and worth a visit even if not going to Watts Gallery. The terracotta exterior is stunning, and the whole interior is covered in murals

Do not miss this - inside is marmite - you will love it or hate it. The very busy and ornate designs by Mary Watts will get a reaction - probably WOW!

This little chapel is totally unique, and once you've found it (no mean feat) you need to give yourself time to totally absorb its detailed decoration and then walk (5mins) or drive (30 secs) to the Watts Gallery to buy one of their books or look in the gallery to learn more about the amazing Mary Watts who designed and...
