    St Michael's Church

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Before we had lunch at The Fat Duck, we took a wander around Bray and visited St Michael's Church. This pretty looking church has roots back to 1294.

    It was moved to its current location after villagers complained that the (previous) church was too far outside the main village. They tore the old church down and then all contributed to the rebuilding of the current church in the heart of the village. Today there are only a few carvings remaining from the old church.

    The church is surrounded by trees, scrubs and gravestones, and makes a pleasant place for a stroll or some quiet reflection.

    Not the only Church in Bray but the one from the satirical song.
    If you enter from the High street walk to the right of the Hind's Head hotel and through the interesting gates under the cottage.
    Check the web site for all Church activities and service times.
