Explore Great St Mary’s with our self-guided walking tour

9 January 2018

Explore, discover and experience Great St Mary’s with our self-guided walking tour.

Explore the church to look more closely at its beautiful features: the carved pews, stunning stained glass, font and resplendent Majestas to name a few.  Discover the stories behind the features: have you ever wondered why Great St Mary’s has two organs, why it is the official centre of Cambridge, why its pulpit is on rails and why the bells sound the same as the Westminster Chimes?  Find out more about the fascinating people associated with the church:  Queen Elizabeth I, the infamous Dr Butler and the Protestant Reformer Martin Bucer with his buried and burnt body! Experience the peace and tranquility of the church as you wander.

The walking tour is available to purchase from the gift shop for only 50p.
