“Quiet tranquil and thoughtful”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

A good place to to draw aside from busy lives. Contemplative and yet full of history linked to Alderney. Clearly the centre of a vibrant community. Worth a visit.

“Final resint Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

Family are buried in the cemetery surrounding this fine example of a stone built church. Comforting to know they are at rest in such nice surrounds.

“More like a Cathedral”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 August 2013

This is a lovely church, called the Cathedral of the Isles because it is huge and beautifully ornate.
When you walk in there is the lovely smell of beeswax in the air. Lovely flowers and a feeling of peace.
nice to just sit quietly and contemplate.

“Church with Great Bells”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 July 2013

We visited at Easer and found the congregation to be warm and friendly.The Church of St Anne's is well maintained, large and impressive given the size of the Island. We were invited to ring the bells for the Service which was a great experience. The bells have since been removed for renovation however they are soon to be rehung in Sept with an addition of another 6 making it the only Church in the Channel Islands to have 12 bells all cast in the same foundry.
