The roof tour of this beautiful and fascinating building is the best £5 i've ever spent, with a very interesting guide.

If you like old historic and imposing buildings, this is definitely for you. There is nothing at all to dislike about the Minster. It is on a par with York and even some of the European Cathedrals such as Chartres.

This is a magnificent church (not a Cathedral - York's too big / close) but with a wonderfully friendly atmosphere: no queues, no commercialism, just peace and lots to enjoy. Look out for musician carvings everywhere - and, ideally, attend choral evensong (Thursday evenings during term-time)

I have wanting to visit the Minster for many years, but was very disappointed by an extremely rude and officious guide by the name of John! I had found an open door which led up to the roof space, only to be confronted by this guide, who was showing a party around. He seemed to take great pleasure in embarrassing... More

We were staying in the area and decided to include a visit to the Minster in our itinerary. We were not disappointed. The Minster is an impressive building with much to take in. The volunteer hosts are welcoming and very knowledgeable. There is no charge for entry but a small charge if you wish to take photographs. Refreshment facilities are... More

I went with a group,of people from work to have a tour before we went out for dinner one night. We had an excellent tour of the minster itself and had all the parts that the public can normally see well explained to us. It really is a lovely minster. We were then taken up into the roof which made... More

This is an awesome building, and I was lucky enough to be attending a concert there during the Early Music Festival which was a wonderful experience. A great view and acoustics. Warm too! Volunteers manning the event were really helpful.

Very large church for this lovely small town. Wonderful building very large hence a Minster rather than a church. No entry fee which makes a refreshing change, donations suggested.

I have been 3 times now and I must admit the view of this stunning place never gets old. Always lots of people in there which is fabulous for donations and upkeep of the place. Never really sure when you should and shouldn't go though...I think we went on a day that there was some sort of mass Christening last... More

Lucky for me, I was given a tour of the Minster by a friend. Very interesting history is displayed within it's walls. A view of modern art is also present to display the continuity of the Minster and it's array of historic evolution of time.
