Definitely worth a visit if you are interested in churches for the sweeping height of the interior. Only saw the unusual clock briefly and we didn't have time to stay for the presentation about it unfortunately.

A beautiful gothic cathedral in the centre of Beauvais. Definitely worth a visit. We could not get inside because we went late in the day but even the outside is amazing to look at.

Beautiful gothic and atmospheric building with a fascinating astronomical clock, mixture of old and modern stained glass windows and sadly currently suffering from problems with foundations. Nearby are cafes and street parking.

Nuce cathedral in the center of city. Entrance is free. Many bars and restaurants around. Distance from square is around 300m.

It is a big and interesting cathedral. But inside is very cold in winter time. Better to visit other seasons

A rather truncated version of the classic Gothic cathedral, with only a transept and choir, but still beautiful. Its stained glass windows are particularly notable. It also has the rather odd feature of a 19th century astronomical clock. Pretty enough but it seems somewhat out...More

Well worth a visit - fantastic architecture even if they got the calculations a bit wrong and it needs some reinforcements. A good diversion on the way somewhere else.
