“Beautiful and peaceful space”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 26, 2013

The round church is a quite unique space in the middle of Cambridge with lots of architectural interest in its small interior. The staff were very pleasant and happy to talk about the church, its history and all manner of other (connected) subjects. There was also the opportunity to sit in a corner of the building and watch a video illustrating the history of Cambridge from a Christian perspective - very informative and thought-provoking. One of those places in which you can forget you are in the middle of a busy city!

“Excellent historical presentation of England, the Church and Cambridge”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2013

Located in the center of Cambridge, it is a rare and beautiful church built by the Order of the Temple. Inside you will find a very well documented and summarized history of England, Christianity and Cambridge, there is also a very good selection of books on offer.

“Lovely little church”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 23, 2013

Lovely and unusual little church with interesting (if a little religiously biased) displays. Quite enjoyed the visit but nothing particularly special.
