After visiting York Minster this is the next place to go if you like history and architecture. A 16th century wonder.

The church is nowhere near as grand as its close neighbour, the minster, but it has an air of well used and lively Christian worship set in a traditional church.

A lovely place with beautiful architecture and interesting windows. I would have liked to have attended a service there as I think the building had a wonderful atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.

Well, we found a lot of very beautiful old churches in York but I must say this one was one of the less interesting. Located just next to the minster.

If you're visiting York Minster then why not visit St. Michael since it's essentially across the street. We visited during a service and we enjoyed seeing how the locals worship.

Lovely church with a fresh modern feel. This is a great contrast from the old feeling minister over the path from St Michael.

For evangelical Christians this is a must. The church is generally packed on a Sunday evening. The singing is great, The sermons are edifying. The fellowship is outstanding.

This is a church that believes what it says and puts it into practice. A wonderful piece of history that is not content to remain in the past but brings a culturally relevant outward facing approach to the numerous tourists and local people who visit
