To know Christ and to make him known

 About 
Church Interior
The church in Burford welcomes over 100,000 visitors each year from around the globe and is open from 9am to 5pm every day, excluding Christmas Day. We do however, close the church to visitors during services and other events, so please do check below for closures before travelling. Details of the opening times of other churches in the Benefice can be found on their indiviidual pages.

We provide a free guide to the church, as well as guides in foreign languages and our verger is always happy to answer questions on the building or the activities held here. We can also provide guided tours by prior arrangement, which can include tea and cake in the Lady Chapel afterwards. Please contact the church office for more information and costs.

Many tour groups include Burford Church in their itinerary. If you are arranging a tour, please contact us beforehand to let us know the size of your party and ensure that the church will be open. A donation from tour companies visiting the church with a group is welcomed and we can provide a receipt by prior arrangement.
