Holy Trinity Church, York

4.7
Despite its unimposing exterior appearance, Holy Trinity Church 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. A visit to Holy Trinity Church represents just the start of the adventure when you use our York trip planning website to plot your vacation.

  • Visit the Minster then visit this about 2 minutes away. Its easy to miss on a busy day but have a look at the pews very different like they had a class system 1st class ect. Well worth spending 20 min...  more »
  • the only other church I have seen with these very old style family pews is on the top of the hill at Whitby, next to the looming Abbey that overlooks Whitby town.... these ones are well worth a visit.  more »

  • A very lovely little church - one of the most touching I have ever seen. The interior is fantastic. It is like you enter a place of several decades ago. There is also a bench made of wood with carvings going back to the vikings. The people there are very friendly and even lit the candles for me during my visit to take more athmospherical pictures. I can really recommend the place. It belongs to my best memories of York.
  • Lovely church rather oddly set out inside worth having a look around just for it's quirkyness very difficult to find especially now the yearly viking market is held here the directions to it really should be a lot better
