All Saints Pavement is situated right in the centre of the busy city of York. A very peaceful quite place with some wonderful architecture. Especially interesting is the pulpit with its elaborate carving and inscriptions. The church is well worth a visit.

A beautiful Church with a tall spire in the middle of the York shopping precinct and well worth a stop & look. Couldn't find out the story behind the strange name though ?

In the middle of the busy York street scene is this church whose lantern used to guide people in from the north. It is lovely inside and worth a visit.

All Saints is a beautiful church situated at the corner of Pavement, so named because it is thought to be the first medieval street in York to be paved. The present church dates from the 14th century, although an earlier church was situated on this...More

This Church is as attractive externally as it is internally. Locally, it is known as the Lantern Church, a reference to the beautiful openness of the Tower. Inside, there are many features to admire but the windows are of particular interest. The Church is situated...More
