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

Tiny little church but with wonderful little box pews, a stone altar, beautiful stained glass windows, a squinty window. Definitely worth popping away from the shops for a viewing.

Church not particularly attractive, but nevertheless historic. Guy Fawkes was baptised here. At first was put of by a `guide` who, then went onto to teach us so much of the general history of how church names and descriptive religious terminologies evolved and why.

Real, genuine church that somehow has survived the centuries without much change. You can almost expect to come across any monk at any moment.

Our walking tour guide was really good. Go early (by 9:15am) to avoid the line. What an interesting place!

This is such a stunning church, so beautiful inside. My 3 x great grandparents were married in this church on the 28th of December 1833. The staff worked out that the alter rail was there when they married and so they would have touched the actual rail. Wonderful.

Had no idea this existed and just happened to look through an iron gate - could not resist going in and was delighted - much more interesting than the Minster.

If you want some peace and quiet from the hustle and bustle of York then visit this hidden gem. Such a simple yet stunning interior from days gone by. My tip is buy some lunch in York and take it and eat in the small but beautiful garden. Fantastic...
