  • Not usual open to the public. Worth going when it is.. the Chantry is beautiful example if Victorian gothic.
  • If you're near, definitely stop in. The meditation window on the meaning of the house of God was awesome, really thought provoking. And the chancel (the bit that looks furnished) is in such a different condition to the rest of the church!
  • What a beautiful old building. To think it's been there for hundreds of years and survived being bombed is amazing.
  • Pretty cool bit of History, have a look around if you're exploring the area.
  • The Garrison Church "Domus Dei", or what is left of it.., is a beautiful sight. Built in 1212 ad in what is now one of the nicer parts of the city, can be viewed at any time. For Free! Sadly it was firebombed in 1942 and not much remains, but if you're in the area, it's worth seeking out and admiring.
