This has to be one of the most serene tranquil holy places, you just feel such a presence, it reminds me a lot of holy island in Northumberland. Lovely gardens to sit in, very atmospheric. A good cafe as well. Well worth the visit.

A beautiful shrine to visit and such a calming and peaceful place. Gardens were well manicured and the shrine itself is a delight. Lots of religous artefacts to view. Well worth a visit.

Been here a few times, it makes you think... It is relaxing and serene, has plenty of parking and a very welcoming café with lovely food. Lovely countryside location; would highly recommend.

My wife and I did a pilgrimage for her father and we walked to the shrine. A fantastic moving experience and deeply spiritual too especially in the Slipper Chapel.

We visited the shrine chapel; peace & quiet, beautiful, stunning art, warm & dry on a rainy day. Don't miss the alabaster feet in the ceiling (?!)

We called here to look at the shrine and say a prayer. The shrine is a beautiful and peaceful church. It’s well worth a visit when you come to Norfolk xx

Very peaceful place to visit, pray and learn about/reflect on history. Last came here over twenty five years ago. Certain areas appear quite changed. Anglican Visitors Centre, which I am told has been open nine years now, is brilliant. My husband and I met a...More

Very peaceful grounds, well worth the visit, if only to take time out of a busy day. Don't miss the chapel and the cafe is very reasonably priced.

Hi Janice C, Possibly to the grounds but I don't think actually in the shrine.... you would have to ask a member of staff, they are very accommodating.
