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.

I walked by this church several times before going in. It has an interesting collage of the long history of the site and people who served in the wars.

Heard about this church from our bed and breakfast host in another town and I'm so glad we stopped in. It is a very peaceful spot hidden away in the heart of the city. The original box pews and the beautiful stained glass are interesting to see. And information about the expansions to the church since medieval times is very... More

We only popped in here because a slightly inebriated local pointed us to it. So glad we did, it's completely original - no electricity - and therefore rather special.

The history in the church is very interesting. Enjoyed the stain glass windows. Considering the age, the church is very well maintained. Quiet and not touristy.

Ancient church with a exhibition explaining the history and restoration of the church. A hidden gem.tucked away. We found it more fascinating than the Minster if not as impressive. Well worth the visit

Wow a gem of a find! We were directed here by the lovely staff at the Star Inn, who told us it was opposite Tesco down a little street. As soon as you walk in the noise of the street fades away. The church itself is stunning but what stands out are the pews, all boxed in. Just a shame... More

We hardly miss an old church, so we'll search them out and the Holy Trinity was on the list. It isn't very large, so didn't take long to view.

This place was an amazing found for a bit rest. I was with my dog, so he could be free in the garden, which are far from streets. The place is very quiet, almost hidden. The spot is not easy to find. There are two corridors entrance that lead to the garden. One from Goodramgate street (in front of tesco... More

The beautiful gardens & organ music (practice time) wafting out of this church invited me inside. The historic display at the back of the church was interesting, the large door at the back immense, the little chapel at the back beautiful, and the gardens peaceful. It is not far from Mickelgate Bar (gate). Note the umbrella racks attached to the... More

A volunteer at the York Minster suggested that I visit this delightful little church. He was certainly correct in that it would be worthwhile visiting. Especially as this church is reputed to have a haunted tower. As the tower windows are boarded up, it is impossible to see the ghost. Although this church is only small, I still enjoyed myself...
