The Minster itself is beautiful. We went for the Evensong service at 5.15pm on Saturday. It was a lovely service and a nice way to see the church come to life rather than just tour it.

What can you say about York Minster other than go and see it you will not be disappointed. If you have a head for heights then head up to the roof for some spectacular views across the city.

If you want to see the building from the top, try to follow the step up through city wall. It is good especially when the weather's nice.
