St cross is steeped in history and in a very beautiful setting. There are some lovely gardens to enjoy and a great coffee shop.

For the weary pilgrims and travellers, worth a trip to taste the alms - bread and ale. More importantly, this is a 30 minute walk through the peaceful water meadows with stunning views of St Catherines Hill, and chances of seeing a kingfisher or even an otter. Or take the alternative route along Kingsgate Street including some proper English pubs,... More

Walking from the City Mill along the river and through the water meadows in glorious sunshine was a great way to spend an hour, greeted with tea and cake at the beautiful buildings, well worth a visit for lovers of history.

Bit of a cheat this, as it's not really a review of the Hospital of St. Cross (did that in September 2015), but more praise for the on-site café - "The Hundred Men's Tea Room". As mentioned in my previous review, this is an ideal refreshment stop whilst exploring the delightful water meadows. We called in again on Saturday whilst... More

This is a really lovely place in a lovely setting. It's an easy walk from the town across the water meadows - there is also parking at St. Cross. The history there is amazing and the buildings really stunning. They do guided tours somethimes so it would be well worth checking out to see if available. However its nice enough... More

Went to this attraction with a friend who is a Trustee and Friend of The Hospital [which isn't a hospital, of course]. It was a beautiful hot and sunny day so the gardens were looking absolutely lovely and the water feature was very cooling. The Church is a quiet oasis and the whole area is steeped in history and tradition.... More

It's like stepping back 800 years in this haven of peace. Remember to actually ask for the wayfarer's dole - merely asking whether they still do it isn't pod enough. The church itself is considered by some to be better than the cathedral.

Whenever I visit the Hospital of St Cross I feel a real sense of history, as the whole area evokes typical English countryside from centuries ago. Beautiful buildings, well tended gardens, excellent tea room and small shop. A delightful place to sit and rest at any season - always a pleasure to visit. The resident Brethren enjoy chatting to visitors,... More

The garden is at its best and the flower display lovely. St Cross is so atmospheric with the water meadows and St Catherine's Hill behind it

I'm not big on visiting churches, but St Cross is beautiful. With the water meadows and St Catherine's Hill as a backdrop, the church is accessed through a two gateways which lead to the One hundred men's hall and the houses of the brothers, with their tall chimneys and beautiful stonemasonry. The church quaint, and its gardens are stunning. A... More
