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.

Someone directed us to see this (otherwise we would not have found it). It did seem to be hidden and was such a wonderful find. Box pews and all inside authentic. Very good and informative guide gave us information. A definite highlight.

Walking down the pathway you come upon this church and peace and calm descends. Be careful of the pathway, it can be slippy if wet. Nice to meet a volunteer inside who can tell you about the church otherwise you can miss so much. Shame...More

This is the one with the Lantern on the roof. It was also a sanctuary church and has a sanctuary door knocker. Lovely atmosphere and good to go in for a few quiet minutes to sit and recharge.

This little church is tucked away so avoids the crowds which is not too common in York. I have never seen a church set out the same way with the little booths inside, very interesting to see! The garden outside the church is lovely and...More

A beautiful old church in the centre of the city, step through the gates and leave the noise behind you, a beautiful place to visit.

One of the few you don't have to pay an entry fee for and is in use. Very pretty in a puritan style. Well worth the time

This church still had the box pews in it and is very historical. Well worth visiting. Buy something there to support the churches conservation trust! It is hidden away on a shopping street so is a pleasant place to escape to.

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
