One of the most beautiful churchs in England. Built by Augustus Welby Pugin, who also decorated the Houses of Parliament.

Gloriously decorated church using top grade materials. One of Pugin's very best commissions. The tiles, the stained glass, the fixtures and fittings are a joy. Don't forget a £1 for the meter to switch the lights on!

Most ornate and beautiful interior. Rich reds and gold run through the design. Very unique and a superb example of Pugin's work.
