We were in awe of the beautiful minster from the outside, but when we realised it was £10 per person to view the inside, we didnt continue. There were no prices at all on the outside, you only find out you have to pay to see a house of God when you enter. Not pleased.

A cheesy title, I know. But "wow" is really the word that comes to mind. The Minster is an amazing building. I guess that's what you get when you take two centuries to build a church. York is a charming city and a visit to its Minster is a requirement. I was also surprised to learn that Constantine was made... More

An awe inspiring interior, lush and richly decorated. The stained glass windows are beautiful. The ceiling leaves one speechless. Everywhere you turn there is something beautiful or eye-catching to see. Did not take the tour but bought a guidebook which gave me the information I needed to enjoy my visit. I'm glad I did because I have a souvenir with... More

What a masterpiece. The guided tour was well done, but you also need to wander and get lost in this incredible building.

A bit expensive at £10, but a great place full of history. Architecture is fantastic, especially the stained glass windows.

Ridiculously expensive! Refused to pay such an amount to go in, friends advised to go into a service, that way you get in for free. Ok it was impressive and not being religious had to sit through a service, but no wonder the Churches are so rich extorting money out of people. Would I pay to go, NO, go to... More

York Minster offers so much more than spiritual sanctuary, with history, education, architectural wonder, art and sightseeing all rolled into one attraction, not to be missed if you are in the area. The exhibits into stonemasonry and stained glass windows are informative for children and adults alike. One can wander into the crypt and see the original Roman foundations, next... More
