Holy Trinity Goodramgate has the air of a hidden treasure. It stands in a small, secluded, leafy churchyard, with the Minster towering behind, tucked away behind Goodramgate - one of York's busiest shopping streets. To visit, you pass through an 18th-century archway tacked on to buildings that served as artisans' workshops in the 14th century. The church itself is full of character. The floors and arcades are charmingly uneven. Light filters through the windows, illuminating honey-coloured stone. The east window especially has marvellous stained glass that was donated in the early 1470s by the Reverend John Walker, rector of the church. On sunny days, transient gems of coloured light are scattered on the walls, and various Medieval faces stare out from the windows.

The church has its foundation going back to the 12th century with the present structure from the 15th century. It is a small treasure that is filled with character. The box pews and slanted floors are amazing. And the East window of stained glass is spectacular with the sun shining on it. Outside at the entrance is a very large... More

Two steps from busy street through the arch - and you come into medieval masterpiece, small relative to Minster, but remained all original design and decor. Here is very quiet courtyard to rest from noisy York streets and crowds and to feel the history of centuries.

This ancient church has unusual box pews, which were reserved for single families, similar to a box at a theatre. the whole church is very atmospheric.

A true gem just off the main road. Tranquil and so well kept. Loved the history and displays. A nice escape off the shopping spree.

Holy Trinity Church is a hidden surprise in the centre of York. The garden/courtyard were very peaceful - I could see the locals know it well and were there having their lunch in the sun or with their children playing. The church is free to visit but a donation is appreciated. They had old box pews which I had never... More

What a lovely historic building. Untouched by modern technology. Free to enter, Ring the peace bell on the way in, speak to warden, she is full of facts about the place. Escape the madding crowds and enter for some real peace and quiet.

Stumbled across this amazing little, old church, showing various styles of architecture dating back to pre-Norman days. An interesting visits right in the city centre. Be careful not to miss the signpost pointing down a small alley leading to quiet churchyard. Don't forget to look at the row of small cottages just in front of the church. These may be... More
