A stunning church in a beautiful location. There is so much history in the area, with loads of grave stones from centuries gone by. You can walk right round to the and along the river.

This church is absolutely full of history, it's also worth a walk around the old ruins that sit alongside the priory, children will love climbing over them. A handy tip for parents, the priority is only a five minute stroll from the quay where they have swans, take a loaf of bread and the children will have a fantastic time... More

We went into this church, mainly to get out of the rain on our visit to Christchurch, and as it's free to visit, this sounds just right while the rain poured down outside, you can of course donate if you wish, we were greeted by two ladies, who gave us a piece of paper with info on to help you...

We came here via a boat trip. Christchurch is very pretty and quite quaint in places. The church and grounds were quite breathtaking and a great place for a photo opportunity

This 11th century Church has an interesting history and is well worth a visit. Fabulous stained glass windows and an unusual choristry. Tea room and gift shop friendly and good value.

We booked this church for our daughters wedding and they actually double booked - needless to say we went elsewhere - thank goodness we did as the wedding was amazing. They say things happen for a reason and in our case they definitely did!!

This building is just awesome, when you go in and look around it is breath taking, there is a feeling of inner peace, and the staff are great.
