Church of St Mary the Great

The Great St Mary's Church, as it is locally known, is central to Cambridge and Cambridge university life. It is the University church and according to university rules all Cambridge undergraduates must live within a 3 miles (5km) radius of the church, while university officers are required to live within 20 miles (32km). St Mary's was completed in 1205 before being destroyed by fire and rebuilt again in 1290. Cambridge university sermons are conducted here, and visitors should pay particular attention to the bells and the two organs housed by the church.
