Interesting church with mini exhibition well worth visiting
Jun 2021 • Solo
They had a great series of panels in the church, that are really interesting to read. You get details on the church history through different periods i.e. origin throughto disolution of monasteries and then revival in recent years and its restoration, benedictine history and daily life, bits about york, different religious orders in york, even panel with art work from various parts of bible.

Had less impressive and interesting panels in exhibitions or museums that i paid for. And all while u can hear what i assume where benedictine chants or religious music playing in background. Def work popping in to see if ur in the area!

A Hidden Gem.

Well worth the walk to the outskirts of the city walls. Also offers a free cup of tea or coffee - well received on the cold day we visited!

Do Not Miss This

Nearly walked past this on the way along Micklegate but glad we did not. Very welcoming, warm and peaceful.
The Walker Memorial was especially thought provoking -- such loss from one family.

The Monks of Micklegate Exhibition inside this beautiful and historic Church
Nov 2019
We looked online to see what there was to see for free around the area we were staying in York and found that there was an exhibition called the Monks of Micklegate and it was inside The Holy Trinity Church which was only about 10 minutes walk from our hotel. So we thought lets go and have a look. It is a beautiful historic Church in itself but the exhibition inside was very interesting and it was for children and adults alike. We were the only people in there and I do hope many others have seen this exhibition and the beautiful Church itself.

Don't walk past - interesting place
Nov 2019
If you go to Bar Convent or are near Micklegate and interested in Historic York, don't pass this church by. Originally part of a Benedictine Monastery mentioned in the Doomsday Book, it is all that is left following Henry 8ths dissolution. I spent a lot longer time here than I anticipated on first entering the church. There is a C15th stained glass window and some early carved stone incorporated into the walls of the current building. Interpretation boards at the back of the church form a small museum space and were very interesting. They tell you about the different orders of monks, medicinal history, the restoration of the church and some Roman stone work found during building work. There is also an interesting interactive screen which you can read the different pages of the C13th Beastiary which was produced by the monks of this priory Several interactive boards are aimed at all ages, so even young kids would get something out of the visit. You would probably only need half an hour unless like me you wanted to examine and play with everything in detail! Then give yourself a good hour (or more!). There is a neat explanatory leaflet for your self guided wander which also states that there is an app "York Churches" which this is church can be found on. I feel they have made a lot of effort to engage visitors and tell the buildings story. This is still a church that holds services.

Channel Of Thye Peace
Nov 2019
Not to be confused with the similarly named church on Goodramgate this is a small, welcoming church, once part of the Priory complex and now the only former monastic building surviving as a place of worship in York. A mix of high church majesty and plainsong simplicity and with an feeling that you can almost touch. A delightful and special space.

Beautiful church.
Nov 2019 • Friends
Priory Church Of The Holy Trinity is a beautiful church that we chanced upon as we were wandering around this part of York and what a great find.
A beautiful stone bricked structure, your greeted at the entrance by a beautiful ancient bell on display called the " ring of peace " ,the interior is awesome, stained glass windows, beautiful pews, lovely dark wood features all houses in a great Medieval looking building.
A wonderful church, most definitely well worth checking out if your in the area.

Quiet and Peaceful
Oct 2019
Nothing special to look at from the outside but the inside is very peaceful, quiet and just lovely. We were drawn into the church by a exhibition titled "The Monks of Micklegate" - the church has been part of a large Benedictine Monastery for over 500-years. The display was excellent, well interpreted and the illuminated manuscripts were stunning. Admission was free but of course you can always leave a donation.

We stumbled upon this church in the early evening when most of the streets and sidewalks were emptying. What a beautiful place! We spent a long while looking at everything. Thank you for opening your church for people to come in and enjoy.
