A King’s Present Day Musings:
Christchurch cathedral is awe inspiring and beautiful to explore.
A breathtaking piece of architecture.
You can truly use your imagination and picture the King sat in his Royal seat worshipping in the Nave.
Several stunning monuments of Royalists who fought alongside Charles in the English Civil War can be seen in the cathedral's Lucy Chapel.
The guides to hand around the Cathedral make a visit a warm and friendly one and happily spend time chatting about the history of the Cathedral making it truly memorable.
A great place to soak up decades of history, view sights through the eyes of Charles unchanged or come to quietly reflect and worship.
