My wife and I enjoyed our visit. Wish we had more time to study this window, as well as others. I recommend it.

The window was on the verge of total destruction when the south transept roof was completely destroyed by fire some years ago. The skills of the minster's glass conservators were stretched to the limits to clean, restore and in places, to rebuild the window. It remains one of the gems of York Minster. Visit in the afternoon to catch the... More

This is a must see when visiting York, a sunning sight, especially if the sun is shinning through. The entire Minister is just a joy to visit, the guides are very knowledgeable, do the tour. The minster was playing host to the players, which made the visit a little disappointing, seeing so much scaffolding and seating inside the main nave,... More

Going to York Minster was to be one of the highlights of our visit to York. The building itself looks absolutely majestic, the rose window resplendent above the main entrance to the minster. However, to be charged £10 each to enter the building my wife and I decided no. We have both been to churches and cathedrals all over the... More

The restoration of this window is excellent, the attention to detail is second to none with such vibrant colours.

This intricate masterpiece of architecture is both visually stimulating as well as spirituality uplifting regardless of your faith, a true testament to the stonemasons of the past

Gaze at this truly beautiful window and feel the atmosphere of the Minster. I believe the window was commissioned by King Henry VII upon his marriage, in 1485 to Elizabeth of York, this marriage then ending the Wars of the Roses that had raged on for so many years before. Visit, and you will love it too x
