Visitors to Cambridge would be unwise to skip this important
attraction. The Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Cambridge is one of
four round medieval churches in western Europe, and dates back to
the year 1130 AD. Most churches in Europe are designed in a
cruciform (cross-like) shape; round churches such as this are
thought to be influenced by the shape of the original Church of the
Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem. Cambridge's Round Church doesn't have
an active congregation, but it is open to visitors and contains a
library and an exhibition about the influence of Christianity on
England. Visitors to the church can also admire the Gothic tower,
which was added in the 15th century, or attend one of the regular
concerts, lectures, recitals or plays hosted in the church.
