Grand size in impressive stand-alone setting in paved square with plenty of history to see inside. Was a favourite place of WW1 soldiers and has fascinating stories displayed. Very helpful Information Centre nearby.

Well, it's the biggest. The choirs in Beauvais are higher, but this church has bigger area and could contain more people. Beautiful too with John Baptiste relic and also other less important memorabilia. Worth a visit both inside and outside.

There is a tour that takes you up there and you need to check with the ticket office and shop to the immediate left of the Cathedral. Google Amiens cathedral Tours for more. Don't miss it.
