It never fails to amaze me how beautiful this building is.

A must see if you have not visited York before despite being bit expensive.

“Overpriced Entry Fee”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

£14.00 OAP per person is too much, The Vatican in Rome is far better value, have a rethink lots of people turned around and walked away when told the price.....

“Good if you don't mind the price”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Ok, if I'm honest I really begrudged spending 20quid to go inside a cathedral (2 adults 1 child). Even with the massive £1 off concession still hurt. Yes it is very interesting and the history is great but 10 quid. Stick to walking around outside and pop your head in the door for the holiday phot. If the price was £5 more people would pay which would be greater than the extra £5 they are charging to make £10 based on the current amount of people. Sorry.

“Shouldt have to pay”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

Cant believe how much it costs to go in here. Its a place of worship. Now i dont mind giving some money towards the upkeep of this magnificent building but to charge £10 per adult is disgusting.
Most churches and places of worship ask for a contribution which I think is a reasonable request.
If my family had paid it would ahve cost us £30.00 to have a look around a building that is meant to be for the people.
Even people sttod in the queue were not happy but felt they had to pay. we didnt we just turned around and walked out. Did we miss out? probably. My suggestion go when there is a service on and get in for free.

“Jaw-droppingly inspiring architecture, engineering and a work of art”
Reviewed July 31, 2013

#1 on any visit to York. Far nicer than Notre Dame or even St Peters to my mind. The stained glass windows and their history are simply extraordinary, The under-Minster archeological site and displays about the restoration work add another dimension to the visit.
