Another accidental discovery - beautiful respite near the Cathedral. Quiet and cool on a hot day, peaceful and stately, calm and spiritual. Highly recommend a momentary stop to your day - near the buttercross.

A tiny, peaceful and peace-filled space in the bustle of a busy Saturday in Winchester. We loved the patchwork altar-cloth. Thank you to all who work hard to care for this church.

A beautiful church that has lots of leaflets on show and don't forget to sign the visitors book and say a prayer in the church itself.

My husband and I visit this tiny church every winter when we are visiting the Christmas Market or when we have visitors. It is tucked behind the Buttercross, this delightful, warm church is a must.

This charming church is in plain sight but if you blink you'll miss it. Go from the High Street through the archway next to the Butter Cross Monument.

Enter through a small side-street doorway and you're in what I believe is one of the most unusual churches in the country with its dimensions being square and just about seating 120 people. Still used and definitely worth a little of your time.

On the site of Williams the Conqueror's palace is this small church open for quiet contemplation. An unexpected oasis of calm in this bustling and popular city which provides a welcome refuge to sit in a calm and lovely setting,
