Holy Trinity Goodramgate has the air of a hidden treasure. It stands in a small, secluded, leafy churchyard, with the Minster towering behind, tucked away behind Goodramgate - one of York's busiest shopping streets. To visit, you pass through an 18th-century archway tacked on to buildings that served as artisans' workshops in the 14th century. The church itself is full of character. The floors and arcades are charmingly uneven. Light filters through the windows, illuminating honey-coloured stone. The east window especially has marvellous stained glass that was donated in the early 1470s by the Reverend John Walker, rector of the church. On sunny days, transient gems of coloured light are scattered on the walls, and various Medieval faces stare out from the windows.

This is a beautiful Church in the heart of York which every year opens its doors to sell the widest selection of Charity Christmas cards you could ever want to see. The different charities represented are very wide including probably your favourite charity.

The church is a little hard to find as it sits back from the street and is accessed via a gate. It is a beautiful place that is well worth a visit. We went in December, and it was fairly late in the afternoon, so...More

One of the few ancient churches to still have family boxes intact. Very helpful and kind woman explained it all! This is a free attraction, in the middle of the town, but sort of hidden. Worth finding.

I have never been in here before but took the opportunity today. It’s a consecrated but I used Church whose congregation moved up the road and then their church was demolished. The church is therefore as it was from the late 19th century with pews....More

The Holy Trinity Church, be sure to visit this church whilst in York. You can enter via a passage way from Low Petergate, exiting on Goodramgate. The church provides a small escape in a tranquil corner of York Centre away from the madness of York...More

I like me old churches I do, the history, the musky scent & the windows. This lovely little church does a good service on Sundays & the rector is a nice chap.

You absolutely have to see this ancient church when you are in York - it's absolutely to die for! Unbelievably old and decrepit, it positively reeks of history! The state of preservation is amazing - pews like this were routinely removed from churches throughout the...More

This little church was a great surprise and one of the oldest around, it was so atmospheric and a real surprise in so many different ways, it was really old and it was just as it was which was really lovely to see.

This is a wonderful space with its undulating floor level, its box pews and its remarkably well-preserved stained glass windows. It is hidden away behind a busy shopping street but it rewards exploring many times over. The volunteers there are also friendly and helpful.

This beautiful old church wasn't too hard to find and is welcoming to visitors during most hours. It's hard to describe it adequately - the place has a lovely old aura of a place of worship that has been used for centuries. It is really...More

Hello, It should take you around 10 minutes to reach us on foot from the station. The easiest route would be to turn left out of the station, cross the river, and keep walking straight on towards York Minster. When you... More
