Be aware that they're currently still limiting the number of visitors inside the church so online ticketing is advisable.

Loads of rich history. Great way to spend a couple of hours. I felt I only saw half of it. Underneath the minster there is so much to see and loads of artifacts. Will go back for a second visit.

When you first glimpse the Minster, it is an amazing sight. The sheer size of the building is breath-taking. It is advisable to pre-book your tickets as the queue gets really long. Once inside though there is so much to see. Not just in the Minster but in the Undercroft Museum also. The history and majesty of the Minster is a must see.

Visited on the day of the Queen's funeral, when they were allowing quiet contemplation or to sign a condolences book.

It is a truly stunning building - inside and out and well worth a visit.

Beautiful architecture, 2,000 years of history, easy to access. The famous Yorkminster is a must even for non believers. Fantastic architecture and lots of exciting history.
