Overview

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.

Lovely church with rare box pews and some nice medieval stained glass. Very helpful and friendly volunteers at hand to ask questions. A real gem in the heart of York. Highly recommended.

We eventually found this place tucked down an alley off Goodramgate. Lovely, very old, church. Inside is well kept and you don’t feel you are in the City at all. It’s very peaceful. Well worth tracking down.

This historic old parish church is in the heart of the old city of York. It was very hard to find; there's construction on the street that masked the entrance to it. It's only open on irregular times, but I did manage to see the...More

Hello, thanks so much for your visit and your review. We're really glad you found the church - as you say, it's well worth a visit (and is free to enter). Happily the scaffolding outside the entrance lane on Goodramgate, one of York's main shopping...More

Quaint little church with box pews and really old stained glass. It’s run by volunteers, and one unlocked the gate when he saw us looking in. A donation is requested when you visit to help with the upkeep. It’s really a nice respite from the...More

We entered the Holy Trinity Church and to our surprise the mass was just beginning. We attended the mass and never thought we could have such a warm reception as we had in this church. Everyone one came to great us after the service.

So surprising to find such small and lovely church hidden from the rush streets full of people! Very calm place with great atmosphere.

I was amazed that this Church made it to the modern age with few alterations from 1700's and before..... lovely.

Found this by accident a couple of years ago, a beautiful church with an interesting interior. Sitting in the grounds you wouldn't believe you were in the centre of York. Very peaceful.

As others have mentioned you almost have to know this place exists in order to visit it (especially at the moment as the Main Street has lots of hoarding on it). I never for one second thought I’d be giving a church a 5 star...More
