An amazing building to visit. While it's not as lively as some more charismatic churches, it is a friendly, welcoming place. They have very nice back garden, and superb organ . We walked in and walked out, enjoyed our short peaceful stay.

This lovely Medieval church was once a college chapel - there are several treasures scattered through it, from a memorial of George Washington's family to old Medieval sedilia and an "Easter Sepulchre". But this is also a shrine to Our Lady and old fashioned Catholic...More
