A fantastic church that is located in central Dover, full of history. Tours can be given by guides and everyone is very welcoming.

A beautiful venue for a wedding - look at the photos on the website...it's every bit as good as it looks!

St Mary's Church by the river is a stunner - outside, a jumble of old stones and brickwork, and inside a huge space with fascinating roof-structures and old windows etc., which they use for musical performances and concerts. It's quite a survivor - fire, earthquake, French attack, civil war troubles... yet now it's in full use and a very nice place to go.
We saw people setting it up for a Folk Festival concert (with the great Martin Carthy starring). It was odd to see a bar being set up, but I guess the Lord was ok with wine etc. so He may also feel it's ok to sell lager etc in one of His old churches.
I always try to peep into St Mary's if I visit the town. A very nice place.

Lovely interior with clean toilets and a good stage. Went to a choral event here and the accoustics were satisfactory

Now turned into a venue for various 'arts' events, St Mary's hosts some of the best concerts in the area, covering all musical tastes. DO keep an eye on their website (http://www.stmarysartscentre.org.uk/events_at_stmarys.htm). We have been a number of times and have never been disappointed by the events yet have always been pleasantly surprised by the price of tickets.
