Rising above Newcastle Quayside from its prominent hilltop position is the magnificent Baroque tower of All Saints.

Completed in 1796, it replaced the medieval church of All Hallows. The architect, David Stephenson, produced a stunning design with an elliptical nave; it remains the only elliptical church in England. The steeple ensures All Saints remains the third tallest religious structure in Newcastle.

Twenty seven windows flood the unique elliptical nave with light from every direction at all times of the day. Lord Armstrong, the industrialist, scientist, philanthropist and inventor, was baptised at All Saints and the family contributed to the upkeep of the Chapel.

Sir John Betjeman, former Poet Laureate, called All Saints Church, 'one of the finest English Georgian churches and next to St Swithun’s Worcester, the best 18th century church interior I have seen anywhere'. More recently, the Newcastle Chronicle, listed All Saints at the top in their '2017 Top Ten List of Newcastle buildings'.
