I can't understand why people moan about the entrance fee , it cost us £20 for a family of 5 to visit today and the ticket is valid all year. A member of staff told us that it cost £20,000 per...

I'm sorry I have only given this 3 stars and that is purely for the look of the place! I came here a few years back and it was free to look round the monster and you had to pay to go up the tower. Now they want to charge £15 each to go into the Minster and go up... More

We visited York today from Durham and decided we would have a look around the Minster. As we entered the Minster we worked out the admission fee was going to cost us £50.00 for 2 adults and 2 children age 17 & 14. Unfortunately our budget did not stretch that far and left.

They say it took 250 years to build - when you see the awesome heavily detailed stonework on the outside you can understand why. It is even more impressive inside. We went especially to see the building and to take in the sights from the tower. Unfortunately, the tower was closed the day we chose to visit. Never mind we... More

The minster is a beautiful building. £10 to get in but a guided tour was included which was very informative and quite interesting. Definitely worth going in at some point on your trip to York!

What can I say - this is a magnificent and memorable building that is a must see if you go to York. Buy a ticket and you can use it for twelve months, so encourages you to get to know it well if you go to York often.

Just go. It has an entrance fee, less for oaps. The most gorgeous stained glass and well worth the entrance fee. There's also a lovely garden next door for a picnic
