This features on many postcards of the island and is well worth a visit. A must for the camera amateur or professional.

After visiting the model village we walked to the church to see the real thing. Very pretty, had a quick look inside and looked nice. Worth the walk up the hill for a look and photo.

Away from the commercial part of Godshill is this wonderful sanctuary of peace. A beautiful Church known as ''The Church of the Lily Cross.'' Step inside and find out why. This medieval church has wonderful wall paintings and exquisite stained glass.

A fine Medieval Church with fine and rare wall paintings and an excellent stained glass window by Burne Jones. Worth a stroll up the hill for a moment of reflection away from the very touristic, commercial but charming, village itself. A must if you are...More
