Preston England Temple

This huge white granite structure is the largest Mormon temple outside North America. Only devout Mormons are allowed inside the temple itself, but visitors are welcome to wander around the grounds and admire the building from outside.

Although it’s located just a few hundred yards from a busy motorway, the temple and gardens are remarkably peaceful. We were there for a good hour and didn’t hear a sound, yet alone see another human being. With not a leaf or blade of grass out of place, the beautiful manicured gardens actually feel quite surreal.
