St. Sampsons Square is a very busy intersection of Parliament Street and Davygate, both streets packed with city centre shops. Saint Sampsons Square is named after the Church.

St. Sampson's is the only church in the country dedicated to the legendary Archbishop of York who was supposedly installed by King Arthur's uncle, Ambrosius Aurelianus, after repelling a force of Saxon invaders in AD 466. The building appears to have originally been built into the wall of the old Roman city. Part of an early 11th century cross shaft, found in the area, certainly helps to prove its ancient origins.

The square is a popular meeting place, with pavement cafes, hot dogs, ice cream and pubs all on hand.
