I was wondering why Royals like this church so much that they worship in here. I found it to be an ok church.

Surprisingly small inside but beautiful painted ceiling and silver altar. Worth the extra time to visit.

Rather small but well presented with beautiful ceiling and polished metal. Has lots of items relating to royalty, including German. It’s hardly a religious location and has a small shop inside. Interesting primarily as a place where the royal family attend.

Beautiful church, if rather full of 'bling'. Lots of silverware on show. Became the Royal Chapel after ther Royal Family purchased Sandringham, but is much much older than this. Well worth s look when visiting the residence.

We visited the church after walking around the Sandringham gardens (although you don't need to purchase a house and/or garden ticket to visit). It's a beautiful small church with a stunning silver altar and pulpit as well as beautiful carvings. Well worth a visit.

Lovely small church within the Sandringham Estate, it is not deemed to be part of the Grounds and House that you pay an entry fee for, but if you park in the main car park this will be charged for if you just visit here.

We visited Midweek in September and it was not overly busy with probably only 8 of us wandering around the Church during our visit. I would imagine at weekends and bank holidays this is very busy and you would have to queue to eneter.

Well worth a visit when on the Estate, you can imagine the Royals walking up the road to it on Christmas Day.

This private church on the Sandringham Estate is really quite stunning. It is small, intimate, beautiful and very personal to the Royal family. On the day we visited there was a queue to get in but it is well managed and I understand that there are always queues. A visit inside make the wait all worthwhile. Definitely worth a visit.

A lovely church to visit and lots of history within.A lady gave us a good insight into the history of the church and pointed out various memorial plaques and other various items around the church.A small table selling items and cards and also a guide book which I bought.You can visit separately from the House and garden which I did as I hadn’t pre booked for the house. It was lovely to step through the gate that the Royal Family are always photographed there.
