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.

Though not on the A (or even B) list of sights in York, this ancient church (which has never been electrified) gives insights into church life of old, including the unusual box-like configuration of wooden pews, unlike anything I'd seen before.

Loved this old church, with the closed in pews. Although it was not a whopping great cathedral, it was very interesting. We had a few wonderful explanations of various areas inside.

Was shown this as part of a walking tour, we would not have known it was there otherwise. Its grounds are an oasis of calm and the church itself is very interesting

Easy to miss, but don't. This old church is small but beautiful inside, with its box pews and sagging floors. Very nice stained glass.

York Minster is for awe- but Holy Trinity Church is for reflection and feeling close to the past. This little church is hidden in the middle of the shopping district- but immediately it's quiet and feels all alone. The windows and property are lovely and...More

This little beauty is hidden just of the main street. Well worth a little detour to discover its fascinating interior.

Hello. I am visiting York on Thursday and would like to include Holy Trinity on my day out. How do I get to you from the station? Many thanks

Response from CCT_York | Property representative |
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
