All Saints North St is situated in the heart of the medieval city of York. It contains one of the most important displays of medieval stained glass in the country as well as brasses not always available for the public to view.  The church will be open from 10am for those who wish to arrive early. Nearby are several other churches also open on Saturday mornings and well worth a visit, such as All Saints Pavement and St Michael’s Spurreygate.
