Austere Gothic externally but the interior is a magnificently spacious setting for a sumptuous display of furnishings, including an elaborate Spanish pulpit of c.1600, carved and painted altarpieces by William Burges 1867, Hamilton More-Nisbet 1901, and by C E Kempe 1889. Extensive collection of stained glass with windows by Wailes, Clayton & Bell, Kempe, and Sir Ninian Comper. Organ originally by Forster & Andrews, installed in 1992.
