St Bene't's Church, Cambridge: 2 reviews and 5 photos
For almost 1000 years people have prayed in this church! It was founded in 1025 and one tower, the Anglo Saxon tower is the oldest building in Cambridge. Imagine, people have prayed in this church at a time when Norman the Conqueror was a baby somewhere in Normandy!
This was my favourite church of Cambridge last year and when I went there this year, I realized it still is.
The beams on the ceiling are decorated by colourful , small statues. I especially liked the combination of the very old and the very modern, in one part of the church there was a box with many toys, for the children to play during service.
St Bene't still is my favourite church in Cambridge, as I discovered when I went back again this year. This time I spent some time in the churchyard, trying to read the inscriptions on the very old tombstones. It was quiet and seemed far away from the busy streets nearby.
Address: Bene't St, Cambridge CB2 3PT
Directions: The church is directly opposite of the Eagle, in Benet Street.
