Built between 1844 and 1879 and designed by the architect G.E Street, this church is said to be the oldest Church of England parish. Located right in the heart of the city, the church is listed under Grade I building. Step inside the church to see the interior which has a fine blend of brilliant Gothic Revival architectural work and artwork of some of the famous artists like NinianComper, Arthur Blomfield, George Frederick Bodley and Edward Burne-Jones. Take a look at the stained glass, frescoes and the chancel, which are considered as one of the richest Gothic Revival interiors of England.

If you find difficulty in searching this church, just stand right at the center of the city and look up. You can locate the 202 feet high spire of the church from a distance. At present, this spire has actually turned into an important landmark of the city. Pay a visit to this beautiful religious site which is always ready to welcome its visitors with open arms.
