Overview
More
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.

We were doing the York Minster Environs Walking Treasure Hunt and this was one of the venues. Such a beautiful little churchyard and an incredible little Church.

Attended one of the very few services (Advent) they hold on a very cold, frosty evening. There is no heating at all in the church so best to wrap up warm. A trip to a nearby pub for a warm mulled wine helped enormously. The...More

My boyfriend and I accidentally stumbled upon this church and it was absolutely stunning! Really gave you the idea of what church was like before. So gorgeous and the stained glass windows are worth seeing. The guides were great as well (free). Definitely would recommend!

I've walked past the entrance to this hidden gem many times now bit never ventured past the gate. It only opens for part of the week, so sometimes all you can see is a glimpse of the exterior. But, it is well worth a visit....More

All I can say is go here rather than the minster. Its so beautiful in it's simplicity. An old church where you can really imagine past goings on. Wonky floors, still no electricity, and wonderfully worn pew boxes. An absolute delight.

We were lucky enough to visit this Church when the Nightshade Theatre was presenting a promenade version of a Christmas Carol in the church, the churchyard and the surrounding streets. Excellent adaptation of the Dicken’s tale, in dark and spooky surroundings. If it is on...More
