Church of the Holy Sepulchre (Round Church)

Visitors to Cambridge would be hard pressed to skip this important attraction. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Cambridge is one of four round medieval churches in Western Europe and dates back to the year 1130AD. Most churches in Europe are designed in a cross shape; round churches such as this are thought to be influenced by the round shape of the original Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Cambridge's Round Church doesn't have an active congregation but it is open to visitors and contains a library and an exhibition about the impact of Christianity on England. Visitors to the church can also admire the gothic tower, which was added in the 15th century; or attend a concert, lecture, recital or play hosted in the church.
