What an oasis of calm and fragrant beauty. What a testament to the Grace and Love of God. One visit is not enough, and disabled access and loo make it just about perfect.

It’s a loverly and interesting setting but I can’t get my head around the idea that such devotion came from one persons vision. Clearly they where not so sceptical 1000 years ago!

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.

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.
