If you are interested in stained glass work then this is a must. Also search "York Glaziers Trust". I attach my wife's contemporary rendition of the window. Ian

The rose window is the highlight of York Minster. It's truly beautiful, and special in it's size. Well worth a visit.

OK, Craftsmanship from a Bygone Era may have been maintained and replaced over the years but with heritage work. Stunning piece of glass work from medieval times

Very beautiful restoration. The exhibit about the restoration was fascinating. I am glad we were able to see this restoration.

The Minster overall is absolutely stunning and all the stained glass windows are beautiful, but personally don't think the rose window lives up to all the hype

Of the many lovely buildings in York, the Minster stands head and shoulders above them all. This stunning Cathedral is beautiful and well worth a visit.

Absolutely beautiful. The sheer size of the window alone is breathtaking but when you observe it within the walls of the Minster you can't help but marvel. Stunning.

Simply stunning and huge. It is so good to see this window back where it belongs, in its full glory, after the long restoration following the devastating fire in the Minster some years ago. A masterpiece and congratulations to the glaziers. The original craftsmen would be proud.
