Fantastic church and gardens, staff very helpful and informative. Be prepared to donate some money. There is also a charge for photos and some areas are out of bounds.

Very warm welcome from volunteers who gave us a booklet to help us look around. They were very grateful for the donation we left. Beautiful church with some interesting small chapels and lovely stained glass. Well worth a visit.

Christchurch Priory Church is an absolute joy to visit if you like fantastic buildings and history. It has so much to look at both externally and internally and contains great history, to top it all it sits within a nice town and great setting.
