  • Beautiful Church inside and outside. It has a nice tower which you climb. It gets fairly narrow towards the top but that's part of the fun. On top of it, you get the best views of central Cambridge , Colleges and the Backs. It's a bit expensive to climb up but I love viewing a place from a platform to get the feel for it so it's worth every penny. I wish there were larger holes through which to take photos.
  • The spiral staircase is steep and narrow, but the views from the top of the tower are well worth the effort.
  • A place of peace and contemplation right in the centre of a Cambridge - take a seat and have a think. I will be back to have a better look round and climb the tower
  • A must visit when in Cambridge. Worth a trip up the tower to see the city and university as a whole. Very beautiful inside. Quite big and grand.
  • Climb the tower it's worth the 3.9 pounds. Great view from the top.
