Although tiny this church is quite fascinating. I have never seen such a sparkly and elegant interior outside of Italy . If your passing its definitely worth a short visit .

I love visiting old churches when I'm out and about exploring new places, but this has to be the most unusual church I've found so far in England. The architecture is fantastic (though the tower does look like it belongs in a prison...) and inside are some most amazing mosaics - full of colour and beauty. I love that they... More

There are some interesting things to see here, not least the pillars on the east side! Very ornate, but fascinating sculptures as well.

Well worth a visit. Mosaics, stained glass and elaborately carved stone. Felt very welcoming. Ten commandments, five on either side of the altar and other inscriptions in italic script on stonework inside.

I used to look at this church from my classroom opposite, which in the sixties was a school. I got married there in the seventies and attended my granddaughter's Christening there in 2007. Visit it, it's such a lovely church!

A truly amazing building in the town of Wilton, glad we took the detour from Salisbury to come and visit. I want to return and learn more. (push the button on the wall at the left of entrance to light the mosaics!)

We stopped in on a whim and I'm so glad we did!. The incredibly fine detail of the lavish décor isn't common in British churches and seemed a bit odd to start with, but the astonishing attention to detail in everything from the carved wood doors to the mosaics on the walls is incredible.

If you visit Wilton House, you must continue your visit to the Italianate church in the centre of the town. This has an Italian Romanesque basilica, dating from 1840.
