Everything a cathedral should be--majestic and awesome. However, the tour is expensive and irregular, and you miss a lot if you look around on your own.

“god's gift?”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Whatever you beliefs do enter this amazing edifice and ponder the activites of our forbears and what they achieved when mainly illiterate, had no JCBs, and no sikness benefit! Pause and offer a prayer of thanks for the peace in the city, unlike in so many worldwide.

“Not to be missed.”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

If you visit York Minster, first tour with a guide and get some back ground information, then take time to take a good look at it on your own. There are so many little hidden bits that the guide just does not have time to include, but you will get a detailed talk regarding the windows and their resteration.

“Beautiful building, overpriced.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

Definately worth a visit as it is a beautiful building. However we felt it was very much over priced, although as a one off it is worth it.

“A beautiful cathedral, lovely to watch both from outside and within.”
Reviewed March 8, 2013

A beautiful cathedral, lovely to watch both from outside and within. Please be informed that York Minster is obligated to let people enter to pray, so you should never be charged anything just to enter the church. A tour with a guide is ok to make payable, but never the church itself. Shame on York Minster ! Gets 3 from me only for what I was able to see for free... ;)
