Most beautiful gem of an abbey in a small close. Dates back to 8th c. Probably the best example of a fan vaulted ceiling of any church in the UK.

Any building with such a history is likely to be special but Sherborne has a wonderful atmosphere and beautiful acoustics (there was a concert there while we were visiting)

A very poular Parish Church and Abbey, open daily to wander or be guided through its history. A very active building with Alms Houses close by and of course the Sherbornes schools all around the grounds

Wonderful architecture, particularly liked the Whistler glass engravings as I knew him. The setting of the Abbey blends in very well with the surrounding buildings.
