Always a joy to visit. A wonderful sanctuary in central York City. Exceptional restoration pews. A must if you like old churches.

Visited today and enjoyed half an hour of peace in a historic setting. A young man helpfully offered to answer any questions we had and a young lady was very smiley and welcoming. They are currently raising money towards a £250.000 restoration. Visit and give them a donation, you will think its worth it. Lovely pews and stained glass windows.... More

An amazing church tucked in an alley behind some of York's busiest streets. Interesting enclosed pews, and other historic decoration and stained glass windows. Well worth a quick look.

Worth a visit - tucked away from the bustle of the main streets. It is an evocative space, reflecting our history of simple church adornment - very English. Box pews are also a very interesting and unusual feature.

Darrell Buttery showed my undergraduates this fine church during our walk of Medieval York. It is down an alley just off Goodramgate. While the church cannot rival the Minster for beauty or interest, it is nonetheless a peaceful haven, as other reviewers have noted, and has extremely rare remains of 18th century box pews. The Victorian church reformers tore them... More

Very special place where you can feel the medieval atmosphere (although the kids corner imo not necessary as it spoils the whole impression).

Arrived just after official closing time (16:00) but were let in and were allowed to stay as long as we wanted. No right-angles to be found as the church has settled on inadequate foundations, so the box pews are at interesting angles.

We entered this Church area through a small passageway just past the shambles. After the hustle and bustle of the streets it was a joy to come across this quiet Church in a small enclosed area of the city. It is surrounded on all sides by old buildings, so is in its own walled garden. To sit outside and contemplate... More
