Christchurch Priory Church reviews
A wonderful place to visit. Highly recommend spending an hour or so exploring it's rich history. There's a tea room and gift shop too. They occasionally have musical recitals, which are a real treat considering the amazing acoustics. Make sure you put it top of your 'to do' list if you ever visit Christchurch, you won't be disappointed.
Finally found the car park (you'll need to interpret the signs,). Priory beautiful and a marvel of it's time. Photography, including flash, is allowed. Well stocked shop with friendly staff. Well worth a visit.
