The first chapel was dedicated to apostle Peter - thus the name. Since the first chapel in 1121 the site has gone through series of demolishing and rebuilding ending up with the current shape and form. There is an interesting history behind the Pilgrims of...More

It is the usual setting for concerts, cultural events, dinners, banquets, presentations, exhibitions and many more. It is an impressive historic site for a venue of an intimate dinner to conferences up to a considerably large number of guests. The cafe was our entrance to...More

This cathedral is massive and spreads out over a large city block in a horizontal direction. Looks great from the outside. Unlike other cathedrals, this one did not seem very inviting so I did not go inside.

Awesome. Church dates back 1000 years. From here the Pilgrims left for America. Thanksgiving derives from an autumn feast here. The painter Jan Steen is buried here. Organ dates from the 17th century. The interior space is massive. A must see.

Having paid to go in and finding the Webster University Graduation Ceremony being set up we wondered how it could be done in front of the alter - then we found a chart that said the building was handed over in 1976 to be a...More
