An English style cathedral, that boasts Saint Omer, Saint Erkembode and Saint Eustace and a Cavaillé-Coll organ that has to be heard to appreciate the full beauty. A Rubens, and wood carvings by local boy Charles Chifflart not to mention a rare astrological clock dating from 1558....Worth more than one visit to take in all the history and treasures...I recommend...

We arrived not long before closing time so everything was quite dark but it was still possible to appreciate the art work and windows.

If you are visiting st Omer visit the cathedral. It is having some restoration work done, but that doesn't detract from your visit. Huge, lovely stained glass windows, absolutely beautiful.

The outside of the building is partly hidden at present, presumably due to maintenance but the inside is magnificent and what's more free to go in. One cannot help but marvel at the various paintings, sculptures and things like the massive organ. Well worth a visit.

Nice old cathedral in an old town. Before you go in get an audio device at the tourist office with a audio guide to tell you about the thing you see.

We visited Saint Omer and enjoyed it that much we went back the next day for a few hours. The Cathedral is fantastic , the architecture is amazing.

It has the potential to be stunning, it needs more money for restoration but unfortunately the only language spoken is French.....I can speak a little but it just wasn't good enough. I think if they catered a little for foreign visitors they could raise far more money

My friend and I only stayed a night in Saint-Omer, but we gave ourselves plenty of time to look around the beautiful little town. One of the most pleasant surprises was the Saint-Omer Cathedral. I knew from the outside it would be a "historical" experience, but had no idea how detailed and lovely it would be inside. Rather than trying... More
