Attraction Information

  • Landmarks icon Landmarks

Ages: 4+

Venue type: Indoor and Outdoor

Discover a glimpse of the medieval world tucked behind a busy shopping street. Coloured light filters through stained glass windows to illuminate uneven honey-coloured stone.

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.

Kids can enjoy the Explorers' Carts with activities for all ages. Make a brass rubbing, or spot the medieval faces peeping from the windows.

Explore the beautiful churchyard, a natural haven in York's busy centre.
