A real jewel of a place. Very very special and well worth a visit. It's free to visit which is always good.

Fantastic history to the building. The inside is beautiful and provides a great environment for peaceful contemplation. Aldus Huxley is buried in the cemetery. Just up for the road is the Watts Gallery and fantastic cafe!
