Very peaceful grounds, well worth the visit, if only to take time out of a busy day. Don't miss the chapel and the cafe is very reasonably priced.

I'm glad that I visited this place but I did feel that I had stepped back in time to before the Reformation, with saints, relics etc. It was welcoming and colourful. The restaurant is excellent.

I have to say that my only reason for going to Walsingham, whilst on holiday in Norfolk last week, was to please my wife, who is a Christian. As a total unbeliever and a dreadful old cynic, I assumed that the whole place would be...More
