A wonderful open space - you can't help but imagine the events that have been held there! It's just beautiful - definitely worth popping in!

“Nice to look at”
Reviewed January 9, 2012

This church is very sweet, and you can go inside and look around. The staff at the desk in front are very welcoming.

Reviewed November 23, 2011

The link with the American pilgrims is interesting enough but there are many other fascinating parts of this hugely impressive church

“Immense”
Reviewed October 26, 2011

It was interesting to see inside this huge cavernous church, which looked even bigger because there were no pews. There was a display about the history of the pilgrims. There was no admission fee but we gave a donation. It is worthwhile to see.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed April 20, 2011

We were looking forward to seeing this famous church but on entering (during Holy week) all we saw were seats for a concert, a bar on the south transept and the nave turned into a green room. What a shame.
