Made it!

You definitely need to be fit to climb the tower & not be claustophobic as the spiral staircase becomes very narrow. The views across York make the climb worthwhile.

Great views

If you can handle the narrow spiral staircase and the 275 steep steps then the views are definitely worth it! It was so windy when we got to the top but great to see out over the city.

Wow, what a climb

Left wondering how on earth they managed to build the spiral staircases all that time ago, amazing. Welcome break halfway up and great views at the top. At 66 when we came back to earth I had to confess to some unholy thoughts not suited to a wonderful place of worship. So glad to have taken on the challenge

Highly recommended

A tour up the Minster Tower takes in the bell ringing chamber and clock room via 2 tight spiral stone cases. It was very interesting and the guides added a lot of local knowledge. Ending up on the roof looking out over the city and Humber was the highlight, even in the rain and wind we had that day. Highly recommended for the cost.

Great views but a huge opportunity missed !
Oct 2021 • Couples
This was basically an opportunity to climb the 275 stairs to the top of the tower and an opportunity to take in the views ! I think a huge opportunity has been missed here and that a member of staff should accompany the group up the tower and relate some information and stories about the Tower and the Minster. There was a member of staff at the top but she did not engage with the group at all. Having recently done the Tower at Chester Cathedral where we were given a tour and information for the same price we were disappointed. Having said that the view from the top was excellent!

Very enjoyable
Sep 2021
After a very long climb to the top it was well worth it for the views of York and to see parts of the Minster you wouldn't normally get to see.
Well worth the time and money.

Thank you Ali Hedley and Alan Bridges from Southampton.

Fabulous vie of York and beyond
Sep 2021
What views! We were undoubtedly lucky with superb September sunshine that enabled views beyond but it was definitel worth the climb. Don't do if you are claustrophobic it is a tight spiralling staircase and 275 steep steps!!

275 steps in a clockwise direction going up . Great laugh as we went up well worth the views. We missed it before and were determined to do it this time. Staff were great. Helpful and informative.
