Great historic church with some very informative volunteers. Home for a time to St Bede. Picked up a booklet for the riverside sculpture trail which was excellent.

Only a small place but parts date back to c.700 AD, so amazingly old. You can get a great free guided tour as well. Nice windows & there is a shop.

St Peter's is so very old and yet it is in beautiful condition in lovely surroundings. The church is in regular use for services and the cafe is excellent. Friendly, knowledgeable staff and volunteers make this a superb visitor attraction for the whole family.
