"A Museum, not a Church" Top 5 Page for this destination Round Church - Church of the Holy Sepulchre Tip by christine.j


This is one of the oldest churches in Cambridge, built in 1130. It Is no longer a working church, but a museum for Christian heritage.
It is one of the very few round churches in the UK and was designed this way, when the crusaders came back from Jerusalem and wanted a church looking like the Church of the Holy Sepulchre there. The round shape as a circle was to symbolize life after death.

I though the church was interesting, but not especially touching.My opinion only, I'm sure others will disagree.

Entrance fee was one GBP, really cheap for the wealth of information inside.
