Holy Trinity Church is a glimpse of the medieval world hidden behind a busy shopping street.

Ducking through an eighteenth-century archway on Goodramgate, you suddenly find yourself in a secluded, leafy churchyard, with the Minster towering behind. Inside the church, light filters through the medieval stained glass windows to illuminate charmingly uneven honey-coloured stone floors.

The east window especially has marvellous stained glass that was donated in the early 1470s by the Reverend John Walker, rector of the church. The building dates chiefly from the fifteenth century, but has features from its foundation in the twelfth century right up to the nineteenth century. The box pews, unique in York, are exceptionally fine, and an interesting collection of monuments and memorials paint a picture of life in this busy city throughout the ages.

The hidden and peaceful medieval church of Holy Trinity is managed by the Church Conservation Trust and open daily throughout summer.
