About this venue

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.
