Tremendous historical building, wonderful architecture and great atmosphere. We went to one of the services and the sound of the choir singing echoing around the building was outstanding

A wonderful place to visit for all ages, such grandeur and architecture along with it's amazing history. I could write pages about York Minster but then that would spoil it for future visitors! My advice is go see it and explore it for yourselves😉

It was cold but we were all high as we were attending the consecration of our vicar as she became the 1st woman bishop in the Church of England. Fab atmosphere in this ancient place.

The interior of the cathedral is beautiful and we spent quite a lot of time just soaking in the beauty. There are audio guides available, which we found useful and informative and you can... More

York Minster is definitely a must-see attraction. Although many complain of the high ticket prices, since the cost of keeping it open is 20 thousand pounds per day, ten pounds to help preserve this amazing cathedral seems worth it to me, as it all goes to keeping it open, up and running for us visitors. We went on the guided... More

Advised to attend by the owner of our apartment, we were not disappointed. We were seated in the Quire, after a short wait before being ushered in just prior to the service. Everything we needed to follow the service was on the book ledge in the pew, and easy to follow. Acoustics are brilliant and the anthem and sung responses... More

I think the genuine use of the word awesome comes into play when I think of our experience one sunny afternoon last March when we visited every nook and cranny of this amazing building. Well worth the visit.
