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.

This little church was a great surprise and one of the oldest around, it was so atmospheric and a real surprise in so many different ways, it was really old and it was just as it was which was really lovely to see.

This is a wonderful space with its undulating floor level, its box pews and its remarkably well-preserved stained glass windows. It is hidden away behind a busy shopping street but it rewards exploring many times over. The volunteers there are also friendly and helpful.

This beautiful old church wasn't too hard to find and is welcoming to visitors during most hours. It's hard to describe it adequately - the place has a lovely old aura of a place of worship that has been used for centuries. It is really...More

Someone directed us to see this (otherwise we would not have found it). It did seem to be hidden and was such a wonderful find. Box pews and all inside authentic. Very good and informative guide gave us information. A definite highlight.

Walking down the pathway you come upon this church and peace and calm descends. Be careful of the pathway, it can be slippy if wet. Nice to meet a volunteer inside who can tell you about the church otherwise you can miss so much. Shame...More

This is the one with the Lantern on the roof. It was also a sanctuary church and has a sanctuary door knocker. Lovely atmosphere and good to go in for a few quiet minutes to sit and recharge.

This little church is tucked away so avoids the crowds which is not too common in York. I have never seen a church set out the same way with the little booths inside, very interesting to see! The garden outside the church is lovely and...More

A beautiful old church in the centre of the city, step through the gates and leave the noise behind you, a beautiful place to visit.

Hello, It should take you around 10 minutes to reach us on foot from the station. The easiest route would be to turn left out of the station, cross the river, and keep walking straight on towards York Minster. When you... More
