Anglican Church in the wonderful city of York, situated directly next to the Minster in the heart of the city, the church is famous for being the place where Guy Fawkes was christened in 1570. Popped into the church while in York and found it extremely interesting. Unlike the Minster it is free to look round and is full of... More

The two female volunteers of the church greeted me warmly as I entered this church. They were giving out a handout that tells the brief history of the church which started as a chapel for the York Minster.

I had to see where Guy Fawkes was baptised, this church is near the York Minister and has similar architecture, definitely worth the visit.

Wonderful church so much history. I love looking at older buildings in York. Nothing quite so old in Halifax Nova Scotia that I know of at least.

Often overlooked its neighbour, the minster, this is a lovely little church with similar architecture. Quiet, peaceful church, nice windows but less grand than minster.

St. Michael's reminds us of Old North Church in Boston with its wooden boxes for worshipers. It features a lively, energetic community of worshipers who want to spread their message in the 21st century. Don't be fooled by its 18th century decor--this is a place to be inspired today.

This is where Guy Fawkes was baptised. Your history lesson starts here. A small church in the shadow of the Minster but still worth visiting.

Went to this church as unlike the Minster it is free to look round and is very interesting. The volunteers are all very friendly and there was an art exhibition there when we looked round.
