About us

ExploreChurches is the perfect place to discover a love for churches and to find out all the information you need to visit them.

Churches, chapels and meeting houses are 'treasure houses' of heritage, history and community. Through ExploreChurches the National Churches Trust aims to develop a high quality resource for visitors and churches, supporting and promoting a beautiful collection of fascinating places to visit.

The potential for churches to attract visitors and for visits to be enjoyable and worthwhile is huge. The UK has a wonderful national collection of churches, chapels and meeting houses peppered across the countryside and nestling in our towns. Perhaps this is why visiting churches (both old and new) is one of the most popular pastimes in the country, and such sites also attract foreign visitors.
