This church is next to Berkeley Castle although is not part of the official tour. The church is free to look around (of course) and is a lovely Grade 1 listed building with Saxon and Norman history.

The grave of the jester killed in Berkeley Castle is just one of the impressive table tombs in the grave yard here. There are wall paintings and wonderful carvings. Unfortunately it is not possible to view the Berkeley tombs in the church.

Country churches usually have something to offer, and this was no exception - not least because the tower is some way from the body of the church. The tombs are impressive, as is the glass, but don't miss the (restored) wall-paintings and rood screen. And...More

Just a short walk from the Dr Edward Jenner museum, grade 1 listed with lots of stained glass windows and some medieval wall paintings. You can just imagine the church in days of old with the inhabitants of the castle next door frequenting the building....More

visited after seeing the Castle. Really lovely. Excellent stone Rood screen, wall paintings, and alabaster tombs etc. Wish i could have spent longer. Peaceful spot, lots of old tombstones in the Churchyard. A must if you like Churches.

Beautiful little church next to Berkeley castle. Many old graves in the churchyard, it us a beautiful, peaceful place with many recurring names. At that time I was researching war memorials in the area for my own interest and found this, like many small churches...More

I spent a few happy hours exploring this church and churchyard. I returned to it three days in a row during a brief stay in Berkeley. Some of the church members I met were so welcoming - they invited me to join them for a...More

I don't think they have a toilet on site as it is a Church and listed building, but there are toilet facilities a 2 minute walk away at the cafe in Berkeley Castle grounds of which the two sites are connected
