Fodor's Review

The baroque Cathedral Church of St. Botolph is dedicated to the Anglo-Saxon patron saint for seafarers. The stone church, which stands on the site of an older wooden church built in the year 1000, has been rebuilt several times in its 800-year history. The church is a fascinating juxtaposition of austerity and splendidly ornate woodwork, paintings, and gilded statuary, including a quadruple clock face installed in the church tower from which eight gilded cocks crow the hour. By turns Protestant and Catholic, this Reformation- era church bears the marks of the religious turmoil that plagued the region.
