  • This is a very nice classical Gothic Church which was near our hotel. It's open daily for prayer and / meditation. Definitely worth stoping by if you're in the neighborhood.

  • The Church of Our Lady and the English Martyrs in Cambridge is a majestic Neo-Gothic church just outside of the touristy centre of the university city. Built in the late 18th century, the exterior...

  • This is probably the most beautiful buildings in the area and being a catholic church, I was very happy that it was open during the day. You can freely enter the building, take pictures, admire the view or pray, without any issues. It is very interesting how, despite that it’s on a very busy junction, when you enter the building it’s like you enter a different realm, everything changes – the sound, the light And what I particularly like about churches, the air! You can probably get a good idea of the look of the place from the pictures and videos online but that has nothing to do with being there. I highly recommend. Unfortunately, there is no car park around the park for free, but if you are planning a visit to Cambridge, I believe it’s worth it to park at the nearest paid car park which is Queen Anne Terrace car Park.
  • The more Churches I visit the more I see the Hansom name pop up . It would appear that the Hansom clans works are almost as prolific and just as impressive as the Gilbert Scott's . And this is yet another with the family brand on it forever . Edward Joseph Hansom was the architect of this one in partnership with A M Dunn and what a work of art it is . Sadly I have just read that like Gilbert Scott's son who designed the Catholic Cathedral in Norwich both came to a tragic end . So sad this is so often the case . Two men who through their work are still bringing emense pleasure to a nobody like me a 100 years later should end like this . R.I.P. the pair of you . Needless to say this is a beautiful church anybody visiting Cambridge today will be familiar with it . I have lost my thread now but please visit and find it in your heart to say a prayer for the architect .
