Wandered around the graveyard and enjoyed reading the headstones of the famous people buried there. Inside, the only part that really stood out was the mural on one section of the walls, other than that, it was just another church.

Best to go there at lunchtime, when they usually have a concert & sandwich bar. The church itself is almost the size of a cathedral & is well worth a visst.

What a gem in the heart of Bournmouth. Beautiful stained glass windows, striking mosaics and an air of complete tranquility. Well worth a detour from the shopping area - just behind Beales.

Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley are buried together within a few yards of the church, up a path at the hill at the back. An impressively solid monument. The church inside and out is impressive too. Plenty of community events, music, teas and coffees...More

Beautiful building and we go there every time we are in Bournemouth. Attended the 10am service on Sunday because it was supposed to be a sung Eucharist but sadly not this time. However, they had a brilliant organist and we would go again just to...More

Hi - the short answer is yes, you can get married at St. Peter's, but you will need to talk to Lisa in the Parish Office about the details, phone 01202 290986.
