A fantastic location for a graduation ceremony. It lent majesty and gravitas to the occasion and I hope it earned income from the university. The roof and windows in particular were stunning

I love this church. High roof for acoustics but also loads of history. It’s a surprise who is either buried within the church or whose memory is kept fresh by their stories. Plenty to take in and think about during and after a visit.

This abbey dates about 1,000 years and is a fascinating place to visit. It is a great place for photographers as there are nice stained glass windows. There are plenty of places to visit on site as well as great photo opportunities.
