Very quiet and peaceful place. Difficult to find parking. Great place to spend an hour learning about your favorite Narnia author.

A truly lovely little church in Headington Oxford - made famous as it is the resting place of C S Lewis. If going to see the grave then it really is worth having a look inside the church. The etched windows are different but beautiful.

There was a wonderful elderly fellow named Roy who showed us around. He was knowledgeable, and just a lovely person. Absolutely delightful.

We visited the church that CS Lewis attended and the graveyard where he was laid to rest. It was easy to find (sat nav!) and on a beautiful sunny day was so peaceful to spend time there. The grave is well marked in the middle...More

Our group came to see the church CS Lewis attended, and his grave there in the cemetery. The church is nice, although for England, not very old. It's very nice humble and beautiful building. My favorite area though was the graveyard/cemetery. So many gravestones that...More
