  • A beautiful church with a very friendly and helpful minister. Given it was day after Queen passing, we said a little prayer whilst there.

  • The 800-year old Medieval Church is well worth a visit. The highlight for us was to see the Doom Painting above the Chancel Arch, which is believed to be the largest such Painting in England, painted....  more

  • While not at the scale of the nearby cathedral, St. Thomas's Church is still well worth the 10 minute walk from the former. It's a great space, with brilliant windows and - as with many churches - has a lot of historical details. Plus, it has the definite advantage of being less visited by Russian assassins than the cathedral!
  • This historic church may be overlooked with cathedral so prominent though it is older. It was built for cathedral builders in 13th century and is still a parish church. The doom painting over chancel arch a striking attraction with its heaven and hell depictions on judgement day. There to influence people who couldn't read. The coat of arms of Elizabeth 1 with Tudor dragon displayed and, in a side chapel, monuments to wealthy merchants with numerous children. Interesting detail in nave pillar capitals. The churchyard, accessed from the street, has headstones and Tudor quarterjacks on the tower striking the quarter hours.
