Beautiful historic chapel that had the good fortune of not being destroyed during the dissolution of the Abbey across the street. A lovely place to spend some reflective or contemplative time. No entrance fee. Would return here again.

Slip away down the tiny alleyway off Magdalene Street and find a sweet little haven of peace and history; the chapel is exquisite, the alms houses fascinating and the garden has clearly been planted with love and attention. Deeply lovely.

Peaceful and healing. I always go and sit here for awhile in the chapel or the lovely little garden.

Visited as part of a tour, interesting place with a lot of history. A place of contemplation so you have to be pretty quiet walking round as there were people mediating. A small shop that nick nacks.

We didn't realise where we were until we recognised the Alm House from a picture in a travel brochure. A bit hard to find but well worth visiting. The chapel is a Haven of peace.
