The UK's third smallest Cathedral, but truly stunning and the only green space within the city. Designed in a fine English Baroque style, this elegant Cathedral is decorated with four stained glass windows by Pre-Raphaelite artist, Edward Burne-Jones. Daily services and prayer, Cathedral shop open most days. All are welcome.

Beautiful and welcoming church. There are four stained glass windows designed by Edward Burne-Jones and made by William Morris around 1885. What catches your eye is how the sunlight will illuminate certain parts of the glass. Free entry.

I have no strong religious faith, being rather agnostic, but here is a place that can offer a spiritually calming environment to those of all faiths, or of none, in a magnificent cathedral, which in itself, with the stained glass windows, is worth the time...More

I was in the city last Saturday,and decided to pay a visit to the Cathedral. I was warmly welcomed and invited to have a look around. If you find yourself in town with a few mins to spare,pay a visit,you won't be disappointed.

It was so noisy in the city while shopping so the relief of the Cathedral quiet was wonderful. I sat there and took in the beauty of this building. Then out of the blue came VERY LOUD organ music. I left hurriedly to the outside...More

After looking at the Pre-Raphealites in the museum take a few steps to see the magnificent windows. The colours are stunning in the windows at both ends of the cathedral.

We came to St Philip's Cathedral for an evening service - what a beautiful building it is, standing in its churchyard surrounded on all sides by modern Birmingham. Not big for a cathedral, nor particularly old (built as a parish church in 1715 but only...More

Really nice old church, set in nice garden setting, quite small for a cathedral but still worth a visit. Visit was made even more special as the organist was playing/practicing whilst we were there.

We attended Sunday Choral eucharist here. The music was beautiful, the building worthy and impressive and the Burne-Jones stained glass windows are remarkable.
