I think this place really beats West Minster. The entrance gets you into the minster with a guided tour and allows you to go down to the crypt to see the evolution of this place

We took a 3 day break to York. We fell in love with the city. So much history at every turn. Great restaurants and we would recommend you use the locally owned & run restaurants & tea houses. We did and they are so much better than the big chains. But York Minster is a jewel. Pay for the full... More

The building is absolutely beautiful. We decided we would go inside to have a look and wanted to know how much it was to get in. Unfortunately, there were no signs to tell you the price before you were actually inside! The charge of £10 for Minster entry and £15 for Minster and Tower entry seemed far too much, so... More

Well worth the admission, and avail yourself of a guided tour. Don't skip the undercroft museum. Keep an eye out for the "3 reclining bishops" memorials.

A beautiful cathedral that continues to be well cared for and maintained. From the museums in the crypt to its towers there is plenty to see and has a full year's program of events. A splendid place to start a tour of the city.

As an outstanding example of gothic architecture, it is second to none. The talk from the tour guide who resembled Kenneth Williams post Bells Palsy was complete jibberish and I could remember more from my O Level syllabus . The admission price is a joke and not worth it. You have to pay extra to go to the top. Top... More

Steeped in history the Minster Tour and Tower visit is a must. This beautiful, huge piece of architecture is amazing. The entrance fee entitles you to visit as many times as possible in the year, and goes towards the cost of preserving the building. My family all went age range 13-50 and the tour was a fun/informative history lesson for... More

Loved this beautiful building with its wonderful stained glass and soaring roof. We were lucky the choir were rehearsing whilst we were there which contributed to the atmosphere. Disliked - having to pay £10 each for the priviledgee, and it was a priviledge!!!
