A truly beautiful and stunning cathedral. Well worth a visit . Easy wheelchair access. Stained glass windows are stunning. Could sit there for hours just drinking in the peace and quiet. Very spiritual place full of history.

Have visited the cathedral purely to admire the architecture, really atmospheric and amazing. We were lucky to be in St Omer for Xmas, so was an ideal time to visit for the Xmas Mass, was the only time I have ever done this, but was a superb experience.

In the middle of the old town, close to restaurants and hotels. Some interesting features: a P.P. Rubens and the clock. The tower, the landmark of the city is under renovation in 5 stages till 2022. The bells have been removed already and are on display in the church.

An English style cathedral, that boasts Saint Omer, Saint Erkembode and Saint Eustace and a Cavaillé-Coll organ that has to be heard to appreciate the full beauty. A Rubens, and wood carvings by local boy Charles Chifflart not to mention a rare astrological clock dating from 1558....Worth more than one visit to take in all the history and treasures...I recommend...

We arrived not long before closing time so everything was quite dark but it was still possible to appreciate the art work and windows.

If you are visiting st Omer visit the cathedral. It is having some restoration work done, but that doesn't detract from your visit. Huge, lovely stained glass windows, absolutely beautiful.

The outside of the building is partly hidden at present, presumably due to maintenance but the inside is magnificent and what's more free to go in. One cannot help but marvel at the various paintings, sculptures and things like the massive organ. Well worth a visit.
