Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate, York

4.5
#7 of 31 in Historic Sites in York
Church Tourist Spot
Despite its unimposing exterior appearance, Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate boasts a rich history dating back to the 11th century. Benedictine monks from Normandy established a priory on this spot in 1089, replacing with their own structure an older Saxon church. The current building dates mostly from the 15th century and stands in a secluded churchyard near one of York's busy shopping streets. To reach the atmospheric old church, pass through an 18th-century archway that once housed local artisans' workshops. Once inside, take a close look at the eastern windows, which feature exquisite stained-glass from the 1470s. Put Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our York tour planner.

  • Hidden behind a few shops but an amazing old church with an uneven floor! £2 donation per person is recommended but it's not much and they want the money to keep it going
  • Beautiful little church tooked away... very peaceful place .
  • Lovely little Church tucked away down an alley. So nice in fact, I'm sure it was used in the TV drama Dark Angel
  • Most beautiful church ....adore it x
  • It's quite hard to find, but it's a very lovely find when you do! It's a very old church, it's small but has loads of history. Worth a visit if you are in York. Make sure to pick up a flyer by the door as it tells you the bits to look out for.
