Interesting and historic place to visit. Was surprised to see that the family connected to the church was the Warburtons. No relation to me but really adds to a visit Large attractive stain glass windows Small cafe and gift shop inside

Very pleasant volunteer greeted us on entering the church and gave us an interesting pocket history of the church allowing us to ask question. Glad we called in.

We were walking the walls of Chester which lead us to this church, next to amphitheatre. Lovely little church and the staff/volunteers were very informative and friendly. There are refreshments and second hand books to buy.

Hi Andrea, we actually caught the park and ride from Chester zoo. As you will possibly know, living in Eastham, Chester can be a nightmare for parking and expensive too. Alternatively you can catch the train into Chester... More
