Free event Family friendly


Visit the historic church, learn its fascinating history, and visit the famous double helix staircase with guided tours and refreshments.

Drop in hosted by Father Mark and congregation members, optional booking.

Maximum 12 on tower tours on Saturday 17th only. The double helix staircase is almost unique in Europe, with only two others known, which especially fits with this year’s HOD theme of invention and innovation.

The church will be open midweek for general visitors, though no tours.
