    The Round Church

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Standing at the corner of St John's Street and Bridge Street, is the oldest of the four remaining round churches in England. It was modelled on the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. The church houses the Cambridge Brass Rubbing Centre.

    A visit to the Round Church

    The Round Church in technicolour!

    I think the Round Church is an interesting place to see. My feeling about this building, was that it seemed to be "out of its place". Not a place where you would spend more than half an hour, but well worth popping in for a few pictures....

    The Norman church

    Detail in church

    This beautiful Norman church is unusual as it is round. Entrance is free and inside are beautiful carvings in wood and stone and lovely stained glass. For a nominal fee, you can sit and watch a presentation of the history of the church and the area but we did not do this.

    Round Church

    The 'round' church or Church of the Holy Sepulchre to give it it's scary religious name is one of four surviving round churches is England and dates from the 12th century. I've seen a plethora of churches on my travels of various shapes and sizes but never a round one.

    Also known as the Round Church, this and the three others like it were all built by the Knights Templar. Still used for some services, it's open to the public.
