Overview
More
All Saints’ stands opposite the gates of Jesus College in the heart of Cambridge, its pale stone spire a prominent city landmark. It was built in the 1860s to the plans of the famous 19th-century architect G.F. Bodley, and is a triumph of Victorian art and design. The interior is richly decorated - almost every surface painted, stencilled or gilded; flowers run riot over the walls. Light gleams through stained-glass windows designed by leading Arts and Crafts artists, including William Morris and Ford Madox Brown. The building is maintained by The Churches Conservation Trust and is open daily for visitors.

It was locked with no direction to the key holder. What a pity as my husband had particularly wanted to view two wall tablets and we had travelled from York.More

We found out about this Church by picking up a leaflet at the Tourist Information Office. As soon as I walked in I was blown away by the Arts and Crafts decoration as I've never seen anything like it in a Church. There was a...More

All Saints' is a stunning example of a Victorian Gothic revival church, decorated with Arts & Crafts joy. The church largely went out of use in 1947 so is still very much as it was first built and decorated. The pulpit is a masterpiece, equal...More

I stopped into All Saints Church on a whim, waiting for the gates to open at nearby Jesus College so I could tour their sculptures. I have visited dozens of churches in and around Cambridge and this is a favorite - unique and beautiful!

The simple, wooden doors do not prepare you for the wealth of colour, pattern and design from floor to ceiling. Almost every surface has prints, stencils or gilded decoration on it and I loved the flower patterns on the walls. Don't miss the gorgeous painting...More
