Holy Trinity Church, Goodramgate, York

(4.6/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • In the middle of Goodramgate this little church has its georgian boxes. Operated by volenteers, great for all ages to discover something of Yorks history  more »
  • We walked past this but didn't have time to stop, then struggled to find it the next day. I'm glad we did - there is some rare history and you feel as though you've stepped back in time.  more »
  • We'd never have come across this church if it wasn't for Trip Advisor. A beautiful, well preserved church that is just behind the shops and offers an oasis of calm. The churchyard has plenty of benche...  more »

  • Lovely little Church tucked away down an alley. So nice in fact, I'm sure it was used in the TV drama Dark Angel
  • Very very very small church with nothing in it. True to say, it gets high ratings because it doesn't charge an admission (but asks for donations with a staff member present so £2 per person is wanted). Dark with no remarkable features. Not sure why this is even featured.
  • 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.
