A very impressive church with its columned frontage, statues and domed roof. The interior is equally stunning with its arched windows circling around the seating area. The history of the unexplored bomb is displayed through the back. Worth a visit for the history.

There is public parking quite close by which can get congested. Failing that, on street parking is available. If you or one of your party is a blue badge holder, this makes things a lot easier.
