I visited following the funeral of my son and found the place so peaceful and comforting. I lit a candle and sat quietly with my thoughts and although there were many other visitors, everyone showed great respect for the surroundings. A wonderful, serene atmosphere.

We stopped off here on our way to the north Norfolk Coast after being told about it by a friend. As this was mid week in early January we had the place to ourselves which made it feel very special and gave us the opportunity to reflect in silence. Not sure how we would have viewed it had it been... More

We rented a cottage for a week in Walsingham. I visited the shrine several times and attended services 3 times. We had a superb lunch at the shrine. Really great food.

What a lovely relaxing tranquil place. We stayed in Milner wing of the Shrine a double on suite room, Not a lot of pilgrims at this time of the year but attended some lovely services. The food was excellent all week.

This shine has some very unusual features (check out the orthodox chapel upstairs)making it well worth a visit, with beautifully maintained gardens and a great tea room this an wonderful place to spend a couple of hours whether you are religious or not.
