Group Visits and Tours

We would love you to come and visit us!  St Mary's is a beautiful 13th century church with a very light and airy interior. There are lots of secret features for you to discover - things which you might miss if you did not have a knowledgeable guide with you. And our graveyard too, is well worth a look around - discover our Trollope Mausoleum which is listed Grade II, find out about the seafarers buried here and hear tales of longevity, criminality, drunkenness and cholera. You can also find out who the Churchwardens buried outside the grounds for 6d in the 17th century! 

We can offer your group (whatever the size), tours of St Mary's and it's graveyard which can be followed by an afternoon tea if you wish.  For further details and prices, please contact us on

St Mary's is fully accessible with on-site car parking and nearby bus park.
