Fodor's Expert Review Birmingham Cathedral

Birmingham Religious Building/Site/Shrine
Free

The early-18th-century Cathedral Church of St. Philip, a few blocks from Victoria Square, contains some lovely plasterwork in its elegant, gilded Georgian interior. The stained-glass windows behind the altar, designed by the Pre-Raphaelite Edward Burne-Jones (1833–98) and executed by the firm of William Morris & Company, glow with sensuous hues. There are regular free guided tours where you can find out about how this church became a cathedral; check the website for dates.
