You can’t really avoid the Holy Trinity Church is you’re heading to the quay but, of course, whether you go inside a matter for you. Even from a non religious perspective the church has interest, the Inclusion in the Bayeux Tapestry ( the copied section on display is very good) and being, allegedly, the burial place for King Canute’s daughter. The Saxon architecture is well preserved and impressive, this is after all a seriously ancient church. It’s pleasant inside, fairly small and with an understated dignity. Our first visit however if back in the vicinity would certainly go back again and if the timings worked would go for one of the Sunday services.

Loved this church. So much history in here, including the grave of the daughter of King Canute, and Bosham itself features in the bayeaux tapestry.

We have visited this Church on a number of occasions over the years and it has always been open, which is a joy in itself. This is everything a village church should be and it has been within the centre of the community way back to Saxon times. A very welcoming atmosphere and many interesting connections and artefacts including the child’s internment, which is said to be a daughter of King Canute. Well worth a visit.

When visiting Bosham, this is well worth a visit. It is peaceful, tranquil, nestled back from the shore close to Bosham Sailing Club. There's links to King Canut and his daughter, who apparently died in Bosham and is leaid to rest within the church. There is also a delightful tiny crypt.
