Even if you’ve visited 100’s of religious buildings, like us, this one is still worth a look. We weren’t offered a tour despite there being 3 friendly people manning the entrance area. However we were happy to follow the self guided leaflet we were handed.

We weren’t offended by the £5 suggested donation sign and did so as the building must cost a fortune to maintain.

This is quite possibly the nicest church I’ve ever visited.
Even though it was a Sunday, a very kind gentleman gave us a guided tour before the church service, and very informative it was.
Definitely worth a visit

Beautiful Priory with long and interesting history. Free to enter but suggested donation of £5 per family (you can even donate by credit card). Well worth a walk round outside and inside, the stained glass windows are beautiful.
