I attended this year's Carol service and it was really good and enjoyable. It's the first year I've been although I have always heard good things. There was a vast showcase of local talent along with a few bigger names. Although this is not something...More

We are not religious but felt it was worth visiting. We were not disappointed. The original Lutyens crypt is very impressive and is the modern building above it. Excellent access for disabled.
