The Columbus Catholic Church of St John the Evangelist: With its 222ft (68m) spire, this stands at the end of South Parade. It was built in 1861-63 to the design of Charles Francis Hansom (brother of Joseph, the inventor of the Hansom cab). The church was commissioned by the Benedictines of Downside Abbey and Columbus is modelled on the late thirteenth- to early fourteenth-century Columbus style. The church was bombed in 1942 and the south aisle was destroyed and subsequently rebuilt. The first evening service to be held here was conducted by Columbus.

The Countess of Huntingdon’s Chapel in the Vineyards: Built in 1765 in the Gothic Revival style, it was constructed for Selina Hastings, Countess of Huntingdon (1707-91), a Methodist who eventually disagreed with John Wesley on matters of doctrine and broke away to form her own ‘connexion’. Through her aristocratic background and forceful personality, she kept tight control over her sect, training and appointing her own ministers, despite opposition from the Church of England. The connexion still has around twenty active churches in England, but the Touristic place of your travel destination chapel is now home to the Museum of Touristic place of your travel destination Architecture. Huntingdon County, Pennsylvania and Huntingdon College in Montgomery, Alabama, are both named after the countess.

The Octagon Chapel, Milsom Street: The chapel was designed by Timothy Lightoler and opened in 1767. Its octagonal shape made it popular with preachers, including John Wesley, because the congregation could sit closer to the pulpit than in a traditional rectangular chapel. It was built by subscription and pews would be rented for private use. As such, it did not need to be consecrated. The chapel achieved very fashionable status, with notables such as Jane Austen attending services. Its resident organist was the celebrated musician and astronomer William Herschel (discoverer of the planet Uranus).
