We've been travelling for a couple of weeks now and have seen numerous cathedrals but this one is the very BEST so far! A lot less people than we've encountered at other cities so we could enjoy the surrounds and the quietness without the hustle and bustle. Make sure you wander down both sides of the interior and also down... More

Much has already been written already about the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Amiens. It is a classic of it's time, with soaring towers, adorned with hundreds of statues, and a classic Gothic architecture accentuated by tall windows of cut glass. But occasionally, a special color feature is added to all of the statues on the front façade. The details... More

Highly recommended if you are in Amiens. The Cathedral is much more Gothic in style than Notre Dame in Paris - lots more pinnacles and pointy towers, etc. In comparison however it has the advantage of being much less crowded and feels like a place of prayer and reflection. To my taste the arches of the three entrance doors are... More

For a limited period this year there is an amazing Light and sound show each evening at 10. This is aN experience not to be missed and it pays to get there early for a good view and possibly a seat

Having seen Cathedrals around the world I must say that I'm a bit of a reluctant cathedral visitor as "they're all the same"..... until I visited Notre Dame in Amiens. Immediately I was wowed by the scale and the detail. Inside it is magnificent and grand, outside it's beyond belief... the more you look, the more you see. And at... More

A huge building in the mostly pedestrianised centre of Amiens - easy access (including disabled ramp) with some great pictures of the protection of the structure during WW1. Only one minor thought to improve the display is that the vast majority of visitors appeared to be not french but virtually all of the renovation and history section was in french.... More
