Always attend the crib service at 4pm on Christmas Eve. Fabulous service and that's when I know Christmas has begun. Humerous vicar, not at all stuffy, and stunning church bearing the Royal Welch standards. Everyone is made to feel very welcome.

I can't answer for the tours part of your question, but the church is accessible during the day and there always seem to be people around to answer any questions you may have. Enjoy your visit!
