“A hidden jewel”
Reviewed 7 June 2012

The fact that this place contains almost a thousand years of history gives me goose bumps every time I visit. Very humbling.

“a lovely little church”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

To the side of The Eclipse Inn is a little alley that runs from the cathedral to the High Street. In the alley is a door and the door leads into St Lawrence Church.

It is very easy to walk past the door and not even notice it is there.

Walk in and you will find yourself in a delightful little mediaeval church, built on the site of the Chapelle Royale of William the Conqueror.

On leaving I was pleased to see a display on endangered Christians and information on the excellent work Canon Andrew White is doing to bring peace and reconciliation to Iraq.

St Lawrence is linked to another delightful little church the other side of the cathedral, St Swithun-upon-Kingsgate. It is located above one of the gates into the city and like St Lawrence, it is easily missed.

“A quiet place in the bustling city centre”
Reviewed 24 January 2012

If you need a minute of peace and quiet, a place to bring your serenity back step into St Lawrence and you will find a calm, relaxing atmosphere. Don't miss the carvings and the amazing roof and organ. Nice interiors of this gothic simplicity.

“Lovely little church”
Reviewed 14 November 2011

Not very big, but it is a little gem tucked away in the lanes, that you can easily miss. But it is definitely worth a visit.
