Planning your visit

  If you do wish to visit the Church, please complete the online booking form or by printing one off, completing it and returning it to the Church Office. Due to the enormous number of groups visiting, it is essential that you book. Only booked groups will be guaranteed entry. We request a donation of £1.00 per head for children’s groups, and £1.50 per head for an adult group are £1.50 per head for a children’s group, and £2.50 a head for an adult’s group.

Talks can be arranged preferably on Tuesday or Thursday mornings. The donation fora talk is £1.50 per head for a children’s and £2.50 per head for an adult group.

You can also hire the Church Centre for your lunch time break at £25 per hour.

Please make sure that your party is well supervised at all times. We suggest at least one adult for each ten children. It is easier to move around the Church in small supervised groups than to allow a general ‘free for all’ round the building. This also applies in the Churchyard.

Please remember that it is a Church you are visiting, not simply a museum. It is used regularly for worship and is cared for by help from the village. Please treat the building with care and respect, in particular, please:

  • avoid rubbing memorials inside or outside the Church. 
  • walk and have consideration for others when visiting the Church or the Churchyard. 
  • ensure the children are told not to eat in Church. If your party needs somewhere to eat their lunch please contact us.

There are barriers at various points inside the Church and surrounding Catherine Mompesson’s Tomb and the Saxon Cross in the churchyard. These are to protect our ancient monuments so we would be grateful if you could pay due respect to these during your visit.

The people of the village are pleased to welcome you but please remember the Plague Cottages are private homes and are not open to the public.

Residents will help with genuine enquiries and directions but please do not use questionnaires, which involve detailed questioning of local people.

There are several shops in the village selling sweets, ice cream and refreshments. Litter bins are provided throughout the village for your use - please use these bins and if they are full, which happens occasionally in the height of the season, please take all your litter home with you. We thank you for helping to keep our village tidy.

Please note that the Cucklet Delph is on private ground.

To help you get the best from your visit please note the following information: Please study the map of the village. The sites of interest, which can easily be reached by foot, are clearly marked. Distances are approximate. Again, please ensure that parties entering shops are well supervised. Small groups only are allowed as the shops are very small.

There are toilet facilities at the Car Park.

If you want to combine your visit to Eyam Church with visits to other sites in the village please contact them separately. You may find our village links helpful.
