I visited St Swithuns when it was hosting a local art exhibition. I really enjoyed the art exhibits but the real joy was appreciating the beauty of the church itself.A tranquil peaceful place. Highly recommended

A very grand church with a warm heart focused on the community. A lovely welcoming place to visit at any time of year but especially so in the run up to Christmas.

This is a church that is used for more than just religious services. Art, photographic exhibitions are all held here and the Christmas Tree Festival is a joy. The stained glass is outstanding

No fee, make sure you allow time to have a good look around the town, Market is on a Thursday and Saturday, and there are lots of lovely coffee shops around.
