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.

About 100 gargoyles abound on the spires and sides. We attended Evensong lessons and music prior to a formal Christmas concert.

If you are local, you can gain free entrance to the Minster by showing proof of your address. If not, it might be rather expensive, but the Undercroft is included in the overall price. The Undercroft has recently been upgraded so that the previous rather dingey exhibition of the Roman remains under the Minster is now lovely and well interpreted. Well worth visiting to get the story of the Roman Heaquarters and the earlier history of the Minster. There are also finds, and a couple of new short films showing the inside workings of the Minster. Unfortunate that the soldiers of Constantine are shown in the wrong sort of armour for the era (they should be Late Roman ...) but otherwise a lovely, impressionistic view of the cathedral.

We visited on the 14th dec .. I knew before we went we would need to pay but I think worth it as we had not been before .. We stayed about 2hours including the tower which we climbed all 275 steps for the most FABULOUS view of the city and beyond , go on just do it the once !! Ps the ticket does last a year so if you go regular to York or live local it is good value for money
