The service was excellent and you would not get better by going to a high street funeral director and paying 2 or 3 times as much. We couldn’t have asked for a better send off for our brother.

The Old Custom House on Common Quay was built soon after and is a Grade-II listed building with a conference centre on the ground floor. 

Christchurch Park is another beloved beauty spot and opened in 1895. It’s 70 acres of landscaped lawns and is also home to two arboretums with exotic trees. The lion head’s fountain is the last remnant of the park’s priory past, and it is believed that the ponds in the park were excavated, so the monks could fish there.
