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.

This is a beautiful shrine with many historical points of interest. If you could guarantee a quiet day for a visit it would be a wonderful place of peace and solace. Unfortunately, so many large groups seem to go (at least on the day we visited) that it rather spoils it. While we were there, a huge group, well over... More

A very rainy day, so this made a very pleasant visit to pass time. very curiously there was a statue of a religious person being stabbed. We couldn't find any information about it!! Any answers?

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.

My wife and I found the Shrine Church to Our Lady of Walsingham by accident more than 40 years ago. We took a train ride on the light railway from Wells to Walsingham. When we reached Walsingham we appeared to be in "the middle of nowhere." However we saw houses to our left and went that way and reached the... More

I would take my children to visit along with a neighbor when I lived in England. A most beautiful and holy place. The best kept secret in all of England! Not the hustle and bustle of other sites . Surprisingly beautiful... Regenerates and refreshes the soul...

I am not a particularly religious person but am nominally Christian. It is worth reading up on the history of the shrine before your visit so you have some concept of how it all came about. Absorb the peace and silence, just sit and contemplate.

The Shrine is a beacon on hope for many pilgrims, it offers a number of healing ministries and an opportunity to be still and reflective. Allow yourself lots of time to visit the Shrine and explore the grounds. Parking can be difficult but there is a car park not too far from the Shrine.

Went there on Deepavali. The compound is so tranquil n peaceful. It is really a blessing to be able to visit this shrine. The entire drive was about 3hours from Enfield.
