Owner description: Dating back to medieval times, this splendid Church of England cathedral features magnificent 14th- and 15th-century stained glass, stonework and elaborate tombs.

A subjective opinion, but York isn't a particularly amazing cathedral. Winchester and Canterbury win hands down on both beauty and content.

However the tower climb to the top of the Minster is a must do (and they know it, as you are charged extra for the privilege). The views and the satisfaction of having made the climb make it a far more interactive experience.

Beautiful cathedral. Interesting display about the window renovations. We think you should only be charged to go up the tower- well worth it for the great view. Nice toilets- always important!
