There is something for everyone: rich architecture and heritage, beautiful tranquillity and spiritually, vibrant exhibitions and music as well as a welcoming oasis of peace and spirituality.  Numerous exciting activities are being staged to whet your appetites, from flower and art displays to exhibitions and guided tours.

Alternatively, if all you want is a bit of time to yourself, to relax in the quiet of a beautiful spiritual building, then make sure you choose one of the self-nominated 'quiet' churches.


And finally, many churches will have refreshments available to help nourish you on your visits, varying from tea, coffee and biscuits to local Lincolnshire treats.
