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.

A Deprived City Centre Church that really is a let down. Talked to people in shop there and it really made me never want to come back. Seemed more concerned about appearance than being the centre for Christ in Plymouth.

I have attended many a good choral concert at this venue in the evening. the organ sounds good to me and space for several hundreds in the audience. nice coffee area at the back during the day (not sure if every day?) the stewards at the concerts are friendly and helpful.
