Seen from the river, the church is enormous and definitely lives up to its description of the largest church in England!

It is equally impressive inside with central nave and two side ailses on either side. The outer north aisle is as large as the average church...

There is plenty to see and admire - the modern sculpture of 'the family of man' in the outer south aisle and the wonderful modern corona in the North outer aisle. There is the table tomb of Sir Thomas Parr, grandfather of Katherine Parr, the tomb and brass of Sir Roger and Lady Bellingham of Levens Hall and the tomb of nine year old Walter Strictland with his effigy under it... Don't forget to look up for the painted angels in the roof.

Nice church although ended up being a bot of a rush getting round as was closing. One way system in place (beause of Covid). Well worth a look and there a nice views across the river.

Went here when visiting Kendal recently. Not far to walk from the centre and well worth a visit. A truly beautiful church inside and out.

I visited this church with my 8 year old grandson straight after wandering around the ruins of Kendal Castle, keen to see the tomb of William Parr about which we had read there. Unfortunately there was a funeral in progress so we were unable to go inside to see this and the other attractions within. Still it looks impressive from the outside, so maybe we'll have to return on another occasion to complete our visit.

Visited Kendal yesterday. After doing the river walk we cane across this church. Wow what a stunning church. So nice to be welcomed by the welcome volunteers Christine & David. Our dog was also welcomed in.
I strongly say if you go to kendal visit this church you won't be disappointed.
