To be clear: the church is not a major tourist attraction. Yes, it has some links to Waterloo 1815. If you are visiting the Wellington Museum, it makes a lot of sense to check out this church too. That being said, it is a nice...More

This little church is full of memorials to the fallen at the battle of Waterloo. It is free to go in although we left a bit in the collection box. Worth a visit.
