These well-loved heritage buildings are of interest to visitors for many different reasons: art and architecture, social and political history, battlefields and churchyards, saints and heroes, stories of local communities, family history, and so on. And of course they are also of deep significance as places of worship, quiet contemplation and family events.
Our churches are 'story-boxes' that bear witness to history and culture, appeal to the senses and offer a special sense of place. Explore our menu of topics and discover more reasons to take time out to explore some different churches on your next day out.
Note: exploring churches can become addictive!
