Known locally as Great St Mary's or simply GSM to distinguish it from Little St Mary's. The first mention of the church is a record of King John presenting Thomas de Chimeleye to the rectory in 1205. The foundations of the church may date to 1010, but the church was mostly destroyed by fire in 1290. Prior to 1352, it was known as The Church of St Mary the Virgin, but since that year has become known by its modern name. In the Middle Ages it became an official gathering place for meetings and debates for Cambridge University, but this ceased in 1730 when the University's Senate House was built across the street.

In addition to being a parish church in the Diocese of Ely, St. Mary’s is the university church for the University of Cambridge. The church also hosts the University Sermons and houses the University Organ and the University Clock. The latter chimes the Cambridge Quarters which were used by the clock tower of the Houses of Parliament. You’ll experience the world-famous panoramic views of Cambridge, climb the 123 steps of the University Church tower and enjoy a 360° view on the newly refurbished outdoor viewing platform. Your trip and performance at St. Mary’s Cambridge will be both uplifting and unforgettable.
