Looking North from Clifford's Tower

The tall church spire on the left belongs to St Mary's church on Castlegate, it is the tallest steeple in the city at 47 metres high. It is no longer used as a church, but has been a contemporary visual arts venue since 2004. Directly in front of the Minster is the lantern tower of All Saints church on Pavement. Behind this is York Minster, the south transept of the Minster and the Rose window can be seen below the central tower. The East end of the Minster is covered in scaffolding as part of the 5 year project to repair stonework on the East Front, and to fully clean and restore the Great East Window.


  1. Have to agree with Chrissy that is some view. So many churches.

  2. It is right in the middle of everything!

  3. We are planning on coming back to the UK in 2013, and I will be spending more time in York that is for sure. With this blog it is really giving me a feel for what there is to see. Thanks
