  • Visitor Information

A fine example of 19th century early Gothic revival, this striking church boasts an upmarket address in Hyde Park Crescent. Immense, ornate windows monopolise the front of the building while inside the church’s vast pillars sweep elegantly towards the rafters.

The church welcomes both visitors to its services and those who just want to explore behind the cloisters of this very distinctive building.
