Round Church

Bridge Street Cambridge CB2 1UB

One of five Norman round churches in England, this was built in 1130 as a copy of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, after the Crusaders brought the design back to Europe. Actually called 'The Church of the Holy Sepulchre' this anglican church houses an exhibition on The Impact of Christianity in England along with a small library. The intimate interior is a gem of chunky pillars and a Romanesque arcade carved with knights’ faces – try to ignore the medieval extension. If you've come to the city to enjoy its history then this is up there with the oldest buildings in England, let alone in Cambridge!
