Very little was left of the original church after the bombing of WWII, The rebuilt church is attractive though not spectacular. One of the church volunteers was very personable and eager to share his knowledge of the history of the building.

We came here recently for a big funeral and lying against the steps in front of the small right hand altar at the east end was an impressive but slightly incongruous grey metal frame in the shape of a flat cross set with many hundreds of individual light, one for each of Plymouth's WWII civilian victims of the bombing.

A beautiful church in the middle of Plymouth City Centre. Open every day. Wander round on your own or talk to people who will tell you a bit about the history of this building. Small shop with cards and gifts etc

As a musician and musical director this stunning venue is a brilliant setting for concerts. Definitely worth a visit if ever in the location. Some of the staff can be a little prickly, which makes it a little award sometime but generally they are very helpful and will endeavour to assist on any way they can.

We walked around the church and thought it was beautiful. I have seen a thousand churches in many cities and this one is very pretty, though not on top of my list. It is still much worth it to go see it.
