About Goodramgate 

Goodramgate was created in the Viking period, 1100 years ago as a street to connect the former eastern Roman gateway ( where Kings Square is today) with the former northern Roman gateway ( close to the current MonkBar gateway).

Originally called Gutherumgate it was named after a local warrior, although some people believe it was after King Guthrum, who was defeated by King Arthur. Today Goodramgate is home to a variety of shops and businesses including pubs, restaurants, tea rooms, choclatiers, jewellers and York’s largest collection of charity shops.

The variety of the architecture on this street is amazing, spanning 700 years. Lady Row is the oldest row of houses in York dating back to 1316 and is one of the earliest examples in England of medieval “ jettied” houses, where the upper story jetties away from the lower portion.

The houses were built for Holy Trinity Church which is situated behind them in a beautifully secluded site. Take a look inside the church and marvel at a building which has remained more or less unaltered since the 18th century. It has no gas or electricity or running water. If you want to hear some of the stories behind this church or indeed Goodragamgate’s colourful history, particularly its relationship with nearby York Minster, why not book one of York’s guided walking tours.
