Overview

The UK's third smallest Cathedral, but truly stunning and the only green space within the city. Designed in a fine English Baroque style, this elegant Cathedral is decorated with four stained glass windows by Pre-Raphaelite artist, Edward Burne-Jones. Daily services and prayer, Cathedral shop open most days. All are welcome.

Really nice old church, set in nice garden setting, quite small for a cathedral but still worth a visit. Visit was made even more special as the organist was playing/practicing whilst we were there.

We attended Sunday Choral eucharist here. The music was beautiful, the building worthy and impressive and the Burne-Jones stained glass windows are remarkable.

Visited today on a very wet dreary Saturday morning but once inside you felt filled with brightness. The interior is stunning. At the moment the gardens are filled with decorated bears as part of the charity big sleuth. Look out for details of concerts and...More

Originally built between 1710-25 as a new parish church 'on the hill' to accommodate overflow congregations from the quaintly-named St. Martins In The Bull Ring, St. Philip's has a Baroque style owing more to Borromini than Wren. It has a single tower at its west...More

A beautiful Baroque building right in the centre if Birmingham. Attractive and light with famous stained glass windows. A very pleasant acoustic for singing and instrumentalists as demonstrated at the choristers concert I attended in early june

Called in the other day to cool off, as it was exceptionally hot in the city centre. I had forgotten how impressive it was inside as I tend to walk past it through its gardens most times.

This Anglican Cathedral of St Philip is in a lovely lawn setting which is greatly enjoyed by the locals. The architectural style is classed as English baroque, making it quite unlike most old cathedrals. Inside, the building is light and attractive. Most of the windows...More
