This Cathedral, officially called the Cathedral of Saint Peter of Beauvais, is huge and has beautiful interior. But it cannot be climbed. If this is in the city of Paris, people would be filled the Cathedral. When we went there - we had plenty room...More
Beauvais cathedral is famous for having the highest nave in the world and the height inside is indeed impressive. Watch where you sit though because birds als love flying around inside the church, resulting in dirty chairs. The stained glass windows are beautiful and there...More
We visited here, all six of us. It was peaceful despite areas undergoing restoration. The building is steeped in history and remains a sacred space. There is a clock there too, but unfortunately we didn’t have the time to visit it as it seemed to...More
This building is something else! I believe that it has the tallest vault in the world! - It's awe inspiring. Although never completed - what is there (Transepts and choir) is truly beautiful. It's so lofty that you have to crane your neck to look...More
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.
What an impressive building.... spectacular architecture.... unfortunately we were unable to go inside as the Easter Sunday service was in progress, but what we heard just standing in the doorway was lovely.... fortunately we have visited before so we’re not disappointed.... do visit if you...More
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.

You are correct. I am told that Beauvais was bombed in retaliation for an Allied bombing of a German city. The inhabitants fled the city to nearby hills as fires raged for days. It has since been rebuilt retaining very few of the half timbered original housing. You should certainly revisit, the city now may not be special but has a charm that I like to return for. The cathedral is certainly awesome. You can get a flight with Ryanair to Paris Beauvais airport and its then a short bus or taxi ride into town. Check out the Hotel Victor as its on one of the two main squares and is reasonable and good quality for a short visit. Please feel free to make further enquiries.
