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.
