While the Minster boasts a bold 15GBP entrance fee, St. Michael le Belfrey stands as a testament to the niceness of the free alternatives in life. The church is very well maintained and staffed by some very kind and informative folks, and even if you do go in to see the Minster I would say to stop in here as... More

Church of St. Michael Le Belfrey is easily found, it's very pretty and when the sun is going down it really does stand out! As with all abbey's and churches it is beautiful in its own right and if you love architecture or are spiritual,it's a great place to go!

On entering St. Michael le Belfrey church my eyes were drawn to the sides of the alter on which the words of the Lord's Prayer and Apostles' Creed are written. The old C of E wording (...which art in heaven) and (...the quick and the dead) brought back memories of how I had learned these prayers in school/church more than... More

Only popped in here on the off chance as my mother liked the architecture. Never knew that it was the baptismal place of guy Fawkes. The lady guide inside asked my son aged 10 if he wanted to a challenge (look for answers to questions) and then work out the buzz word at the end for a prize. He really... More
