Hidden Spaces Tours (Fortnightly)

Open to the public every other Saturday morning

After three years of planning we are delighted to announce the opening of our hidden spaces tours of St Alfege Church. We have a team of dedicated volunteers to guide you through the crypt of the church with stories of extraordinary characters who are buried within the vaults. Find out more about the rules and regulations around burials in the 18th and 19th century. Peer into the vaults and imagine how these would have looked 200 years ago. Follow our guide from here to the galleries of the church where you get a 360 degree view of the church and its suspended ceiling, the largest in Europe when built in the early 18th century. Hear about the colourful lives of those who served and worshipped in this amazing space.

The first tour took place on Saturday 19 February 11.45 -12.45pm and then fortnightly. There will be a maximum of 10 people per tour so that we can maintain social distancing. Please note there is a degree of bending as the crypt entrance is small and has steep steps. This tour is not suitable for people with mobility issues. To book your place please click here
