“Italy in Wiltshire!”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

This is an amazing find in Wilton....the exterior architecture is incredible, one could be in Sienna or Rome. The interior is not so stunning save for the altar area and the dome above the altar, the painting of which replicates what may be seen in Europe.

A friendly welcome from a local guide and a sense of peace and history.

“Wyatt Italianate church, Wilton”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

We received a warm welcome from a guide who was most informative. We were struck by its enormous size, having only seen it previously on a postcard.

“Amazing Church”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

Astonishing Victorian Italianate church on a grand scale. Has to be seen to be believed. Amazing details, vast building with the finest carving and furnishings.

“wonderful”
Reviewed 14 June 2013

We came upon this church by chance.The interior reminded us more of a Greek Orthodox church with its wonderful mosaics and painted interior and ceilings. Not something you' d usually see in a church in England.
