One can imagine oneself in the heart of Florence when visiting this lovely Italiantate Church. The mosaic behind the alter is stunning, as are the beautiful stained glass windows. Don't visit the area without including it in your itinerary.

Outside this is a surprise and stunning. The interior is full of interest. You would not expect to see a Church like this in a Wiltshire village. Walk there after a pub lunch in the Greyhound.

I used to live in Italy and am constantly fascinated by the out of place Romanesque church in Wilton built in the 19th century on the instructions of the Pembroke family who live and own the grand Wilton House nearby. The colours are wonderful but do not match the local surroundings of brick and flint buildings. Nevertheless its seems to... More

A lovely Church to visit with a very Italian theme.Just being just outside of Salisbury it would be a shame to miss.There is lots of information on hand in the Church to give you a an incite to this lovely Church.

The Church of St. Mary and St. Nicholas is only a 10min drive from Salisbury, and is truly worth a visit. The church was commissioned by the Bennet family in the mid 1800's, and is unlike usual churches, as it has a Roman theme throughout. Although the Church was built in the 19th Century, some of the columns date back... More

The church may have been built only as "recently" as 1845, and is truly beautiful in its own right, you wonder whether you've ended up in Tuscany rather than Wiltshire. But what makes it truly fabulous is that it also houses the most eclectic and stunning bits of church interiors from France, Italy, Belgium and Denmark, 12th-16th centuries, all perfectly... More

Although tiny this church is quite fascinating. I have never seen such a sparkly and elegant interior outside of Italy . If your passing its definitely worth a short visit .

I love visiting old churches when I'm out and about exploring new places, but this has to be the most unusual church I've found so far in England. The architecture is fantastic (though the tower does look like it belongs in a prison...) and inside are some most amazing mosaics - full of colour and beauty. I love that they... More

There are some interesting things to see here, not least the pillars on the east side! Very ornate, but fascinating sculptures as well.
