Truly exceptional and breath taking architecture. Must see sight if you are in Cambridge! It looks smaller in the pictures that it really is.

Although this church is off the beaten track it's worth a detour to see some fabulous stained glass windows and the beautifully carved 'Stations of the Cross'.

This is almost like a Roman Catholic cathedral. The church is open for visitors, although it's obviously a place of prayer and worship. I love it as a building and also as a place of worship.

Large, imposing and full of history. Rather dim lighting if photos wanted. The many side altars impress as well as the stained glass windows. Not far from the Grand Arcade so worth the walk.

This relatively new Catholic church has many notable religious artworks. Most impressive were the stained glass on a sunny day. The church was packed for Sunday services.

I think it was 8AM & 12:15PM on weekdays. But you could check their website. They also had other services.
