Very interesting church no longer in everyday use. Ancient box pews and quirky sloping floors. Knowledgeable and enthusiastic volunteers on hand to answer any questions all for free with donations gratefully received for the upkeep of the ancient structure in a peaceful setting. Don't miss it!

A wonderful old church hidden away on Goodramgate. Blink and you miss it. I would say that as much history and grandeur that is the Minster, this little chapel is my favourite by far. Hidden due to being down a small access gate, keep an eye open for the sign board outside. Every visit to York I do, I always... More

This tucked away treasure is inspiring. The guides can you tell you the history of worship in England, as well as the evolution of the shape of the building. There are activities for children and momentoes for grownups to buy. The church is very cold as there is no heating, but in winter the candles are very atmospheric

A well preserved ancient church with splendid stained glass windows and fascinating box pews. An oasis of peace in the bustle of the city

This church is tucked away behind Goodramgate - keep your eyes open for the sign that sends you down a little alley into the churchyard. It is really old with boxed pews! Small in size but with a lovely stained glass window it is well worth seeking out.

The moment you walk through the gate towards the church through the garden, you know you are in for a treat. You can take a few minutes to rest in the garden and take in the atmosphere and the view of the tiny church. Inside the pews are so old and wonky, it's like sitting in a coracle. The gravestones...

Thank you for visiting and for leaving such a positive review. There are many interesting gravestones both inside and outside the church - our oldest one dates to the 1200s! Next time you visit I suggest chatting to the volunteers on duty. We would be very happy to give you some more information. More

Sitting in the shadow of this Minster, the church couldn't be more different yet equally breath taking. The church has lots of interesting and unique features that its well worth at least a quick pop in, or you can chat with the friendly and knowledgeable staff who will show/explain many of the features and hidden gems around the building. Offers... More

In a city of ancient treasures, this little church ranks as one of the best. I also love the peaceful church yard, that surrounds it.

Extraordinary church with original box pews, 15th century glass and no electricity. If you have an interest in the history of York you should visit.
