Overview
More
St Peter's Belgrave is a closed church which dates back to the 12th Century. We offer visitors an insight into the ancient village of Belgrave (as it once was), displays of priestly vestments or time to simply sit and relax in a peaceful environment. Unfortunately, opening hours are very limited due to the terms of our Agreement with the Diocese, therefore it is best to contact us beforehand to check on opening times/days.
