The cost is free and this should give you some sort of indication of what to expect. There’s really nothing to see here.

The great views of the cost and harbour can be had from outside. Inside the building there’s a few bits of advertising about the place and a small gift shop. There’s a couple of floors to explore but it is very small and we found ourselves ready to leave after just a few minutes.

I love this place and have visited it before as the climb to the top is worth the incredible view BUT.. it was sadly inaccessible due to maintenance work on the lower wall and completely shut due to covid.. however there was no real need to do this at all as maintenance on the lower wall should not stop you from walking to the top and there is nothing to cause a covid risk as the chapel cannot be entered except by appointment only. And no risk caused by a little rebuilding work on the lowest wall. Normally would give this place 5 stars as an attraction, two stars is due to the disappointment at having access.

Quaint little chapel at the top of the small hill overlooking the harbour. Great location with some really good views. Worth taking time out to visit

Shame this was closed due to CoVid-19 - we wanted to walk up to it as our air bnb was next to it so we can could see the green lighthouse light every evening. Unfortunately it was surrounded by youngsters climbing the scaffolding and hanging around the church, it put us off going up to it.

We went up to see the church on a wet and windy day even though we knew it was closed. The views were breathtaking. Will go again to see inside the church.

Upon walking around the Ilfracombe seafront, I nearly completely walked past this beauty. Located at the top of a hill overlooking the Ilfracombe coast, this chapel has one of the most stunning views I have ever seen.

As well as this, inside the chapel is wall after wall of infomation about it's history and architecture so is definitely a must visit for history lovers.

During my visit, I spoke to two of the staff members inside who were so lovely and told me and my family so much about the area and the chapel and were just overall extremely friendly, approachable people.

It was fascinating to discover this little house was one a home to 14 people! The lady caretaking the site was very friendly and knowledgeable. The views over Ilfracombe harbour are fantastic so it was well worth the climb.

Was not open when I was there but you can still walk up to it and get some great views. Not sure what is normally inside.

Great 360 degrees Views all around once you climb up. A little bit of a climb but worth the views. Located near the end of the harbour. Still is a working lighthouse.
