West Wycombe Churches
West Wycombe, West Wycombe, Buckinghamshire
Our famous «Golden Ball» church is open every Sunday and Bank Holiday monday from Easter to end of September.

Built in the 14th century and then dramatically changed in 1763. This is certainly worth the climb up the hill to church

Sir Francis Dashwood followed the example of many patrons of his time and restored his medieval church. After a grand tour of Europe and Ottoman empire, Sir Francis had some grand ideas. The famous Golden Ball is a copy of the custom house in Venice.

Climb the winding church tower steps to reach the summit just below the infamous Golden Ball. Will views over the the Chiltern hills it is certainly breath taking.

With in the church you will see some amazing frescos. Artists were brought over from Italy to work on the Church. In the Chancel their a striking painting by Giovanni Borgnis of the Last Supper.

Why not enjoy some tea and cake inside the church itself, it has recently been used in the latest Bridget Jones diary.

Parking is available at the top of West Wycombe hill at the end of Church Lane.
