Attraction details
Reviewed 5 August 2017

This church is only open in July and August to visitors, but it is well worth a walk to see it. It is unique and the amount of work that has gone into its ongoing restoration is quite breathtaking. There is lots of information about the artefacts and restoration in both English and French. The volunteers are helpful and polite. I could have spent a lot longer in here, but my children didn't find it quite as engaging as I did. The history of the church goes right back to 11th century and there is so much to absorb. The church also has a beautiful garden that you can walk.

We stay in Calais fairly often and have on a few occasions tried to visit this church without success. However on our latest visit pleased to say church was open!!
Historic location as was CDG marriage church and if the church looks like a church you have seen before that's because it is an English "style" church.Well worth a visit if you are in the area and of course if its open.

We visited while in Calais purely to see the Church where Charles de Gaulle was married it is a large unusual looking church from the outside and lovely inside. It is worth a visit

Walked all the way round this interesting-looking building enjoying the construction of a Tudor garden with pergola, and a lot of raised herb garden beds with wicker edging. Lovely roses scent the air as you walk the paths, there is a knot garden, and it will be a beautiful place to sit in the sun and relax. The cistern attached to the church is another bit of history. I also noted the combination of brick and stone, and the unusual trinitarian motif over the west door.
