How many times have i walked past this entrance alley and not gone in? Do not walk by. Atmosphere of ancient calm. Curious but simultaneously familiar lay out. Layer upon layer of history and fashions in worship. Stained glass you don't need a telescope to enjoy. Seasonal decorations with ivy were tasteful, appropriate (anything gaudy or synthetic would betray its... More

There was a christmas craft fair when we visited which was full. Of very good quality items . I guess this did rather distract from the actual church but it did look very pretty .

A refreshing and ancient church which tucked away off the street and is a charming and very unusual and beautiful building

Holy Trinity Church in York is tucked away in a quiet corner of the city centre and is not the easiest place to find among the hustle and bustle of the Christmas Market festivities. But it’s certainly worth any effort you have to make to track it down. For the record, it’s in Goodramgate and it really is, as claimed,... More

This church is set in the heart of a bustling street, with a small garden as a breather before entering the porch. Inside the patina of time hangs over the box pews and you can almost see the past congregation, even those in the enclosed order who joined in the service at one remove...take a moment to sit and listen.

This small church is tucked away behind the storefronts in central York and is well worth a visit. One of the docents can explain and answer questions. The church and its contents was built in several phases and contains original stones, pews, tombs and artifacts dating back to the 12th Century. It offers a small glimpse of history, well worth...

Thank you for visiting our page and leaving such a positive review. Holy Trinity does not actually charge a fee for admission, although we do welcome donations. Perhaps this review was intended for a different church in York? More

This is well worth a look, it's tucked away and easy to miss but it is so old and full of history I'm so glad we found it.

I first found this amazing little ancient church 30 years ago. I still make a point of "dropping in" and making a donation whenever I'm in York. I'm not religious but the peace and tranquillity you discover here is breath taking. Historically, it is a gem. How anyone can call it "nothing special" is beyond me. To slip away from... More

I think to many people read Trip Advisor as this is no longer and oasis of peace as there were a lot of people visiting when we did. However that doesn't mean it wasn't worth the visit. This is a lovely church full of features like the box pews you won't see very often and with lovely stained glass and... More
