As I used to live in Hythe as a child in the '50's and '60's I wanted to show my daughter this place which I visited many times. Used to be 3d to view but now a donation of £1 requested. It has been spruced up a bit and a volunteer guide talks the visitor through the history and what... More

We had a really nice tour in the church en the crypt. We had a private tour and Doug gave us some really cool inside information. The crypt was really amazing to see and especially the story behind all the skulls.

A fascinating piece of history which I'm sure is rare must be seen if you are visiting the area. A short inexpensive visit that will stay with you

A hidden gem. If you have an interest in the macabre then this is a must. Went with an American friend who was slack jawed with disbelief. The steward was enthusiastic and definitely earned his £1 each and his knowledge was superb
