  • Spectacular building in which to watch a performance. The seats aren't the most comfortable though, but didn't detract from a great experience.  more »

  • Wonderful. The most medieval stained glass in any church in the country. Recommended visit especially as the rear double door exit (now locked) was the inspiration for the wardrobe in Nania. Go outside to see one of the famous recently, lovingly restored gas lampposts just like the ones in Nania. To see the actual gas lampposts, which inspired C. S. Lewis go to Rose Bank Gardens. Here C. S. Lewis and his friend J. R. R. Tolkien saw these lampposts in the snow. Then walk along to The Unicorn Pub for the Blue Plaque to C. S. Lewis. To finish up cross the road to The Foley Arms Hotel for an excellent display of J. R. Tolkien memorabilia.
  • Beautiful building with an intimate atmosphere. Very good music venue. Lovely Tom Denny windows.
  • Lovely building. Great welcome. Pets allowed to visit too!
  • Stunning priory church as good as any cathedral.
  • A beautiful building, replete with history and a possible inspiration for the Narnia books. I always find the atmosphere to be very serene.
