  • We came here for a mattins service which had some wonderful English music when we attended. The church was very welcoming and we had a helpful order of service to follow. Visitors of any belief would ...  more »
  • Compared to the rest of Cambridge the church is a bit underwhelming as a visitor attraction though I'm sure very nice as a place of worship. Maybe worth attending a service.  more »
  • Beautiful building with beautiful views over the city from the top of the tower. Access difficult because very narrow staircase, is worth (152 markets)

  • The cost to go up the tower in very small and the view is terrific. My children were a little scared coming down the narrow stairwell. The status are quite narrow and don't allow for up and down at the same time, but everyone seemed to understand this and positioned themselves to ensure safe travel.
  • The view from the rooftop is really stunning! You can overlook the whole Cambridge and it definitely worth paying a visit. The stairway is narrow with high steps (100+ steps). So, you may not wanna try going up if you are not physically fit.😂
  • Visited Great St Mary's Church in the heart of the beautiful Cambridge today. The church is stunning, as are the views from the tower (great value at £4). The staff were very friendly and welcoming. However I was disappointed when I went to the back of the church and noticed a corner of, what can only be described as rubbish, piled up in the pews. This unsightly mess has tried to be cover but a big let down for the church.
  • It’s a beautiful church and got a awesome view of Cambridge from its rooftop. To get the view one has to buy a ticket to enter rooftop, it’s around 5 pounds for a ticket. It’s a very narrow passage to reach the rooftop but it’s worth the money during evenings it will be awesome to watch the sunset from rooftop.
  • Amazing church in the centre of Cambridge, next to King’s College. Views from the top are worth the climb, narrow stairs with bidirectional traffic, can be tricky, you have been warned!
