St Philip's Cathedral is a Church of England cathedral, in Colmore Row, Birmingham, England, dedicated to St Philip.
It was built as a church and completed in 1715, designed in the then-fashionable Baroque style by architect Thomas Archer. It gained cathedral status in 1905, when the diocese of Birmingham was created (Birmingham was made a city in 1889).
Built of brick and faced with stone, it has stained glass windows by Sir Edward Burne-Jones, and is claimed to be the smallest English cathedral.
Memorials in the grounds include one to the victims of the Birmingham pub bombings.
