A hidden gem with very special architecture and a great story. If you are in Cambridge, it is worth dropping into the church and spending some time for exploring it, plus watching an interesting 20-minute presentation. Recommended with no doubt.

Nice and interesting, not the best thing in Cambridge but some history and new knowledge about imthr place are really nicely represented. Good way to spend your spare time if you have nothing else to do.

The Round Church is well worth visiting! We also enjoyed their walking tour of Cambridge, our guide was lovely and shared lots of interesting facts with us. This is the tour to take around Cambridge, well worth the £10 ticket.

What an unusual place. Not seen anything like this before. Plenty of information to read and a audio film telling you about the Cambridge Colleges. Well worth a visit.

The building itself is fascinating. We were attracted by the fact that it really is round, and looked pretty ancient. Very atmospheric inside, making us think of Templar mysteries and hidden treasures. Until quite recently, apparently, it was a working church. Now, though, it functions...More

The displayed information in this most unusual space was exceedingly well done, with strategically placed chairs to assist the aged and/or infirm. Follow around the wall, then sit and watch the video.

Unusual and very old Romanesque design, plus they have a great history exhibit on religion, history and Cambridge. They admission charge is a little steep for just a church.
