This is the church used by the Royal Family at Christmas. It's a lovely little church with a noticeably higher level of ornamentation. Some interesting plaques and regimental banners present

The parish volunteers were very knowledgable and shared stories of their mixing with royalty. The little shop had many religious and non religious items at low cost. The church itself was simple other than bright silver altar. Clean and welcoming.

Small but beautiful. The altar is magnificent being all silver. The stained glass was particularly of interest. The welcoming guide pointed out facts of interest. Well worth a visit. We even went to the morning Mass during the week.

Simply the best small church you will ever see. A silver alter that’s unique and out of this world and a silver organ and17th century processional cross are the Crown Jewels in this most royal of churches.

Only locals can attend the church service. Anyone can stand outside to see them arrive and leave
