Lonely Planet review

Cambridge's staunch university church was built between 1478 and 1519 in the late-Gothic Perpendicular style and is one of few churches to boast two organs. Climb the 123 steps of the tower for superb vistas of the dreamy spires, albeit marred by wire fencing.

The beautiful classical building directly across King's Pde is the Senate House , designed in 1730 by James Gibbs; graduations are held here in summer, when gowned and mortar-boarded students parade the streets.
