When you think of York Minster, you think of a cathedral, but when I went in the autumn I was surprised by how much there was to do. When you walk into the cathedral, you sense how imposing the vastness of the building is and notice such amazing intricacy. All of the pieces of art are fascinating to look it. If you go up the tower, you get a fantastic view of the city, but beware: the steps are very steep and narrow, and will make you dizzy. I had a problem getting back down because my feet are too big! Possibly the best part, however, was the undercroft. It's very eerie underneath and you can feel the presence of so many generations that ... Read the complete review

This review is of the historic York Minster, a cathedral situated in the heart of York. The present building dates primarily from around 1200-1400, but there has been a religious building on this site since around 650AD. The Minster is easily accessible and easy to find given its size. Parking is available near the Minster, but as it is in the heart of York, there are many other parking locations. Buses stop nearby, and it is no more than a ten minute walk from York railway station. The building has the facilities that you would expect, a small restaurant, shop, toilets and volunteers are at hand if you have any queries. There is a charge to enter ... Read the complete review

Churches come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes, but they don't come much bigger than York Minster. York Minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, which is the second most prominent seat within the Church of England, after the Archbishop of Canterbury. It is therefore not too surprising to find that the Archbishop of York's official seat is very grand, in fact York Minster is the second largest Gothic Cathedral in Europe, and only the magnificent Kölner Dom, known as Cologne Cathedral to us Brits is bigger. Anyone that has been to the historic city of York can not have failed to see its Minster, it dominates and the town and as the land around ... Read the complete review

I love york and whenever possible go for a weekend. Whilst there I always visit York Minster. The first thing that strikes you is the size of it and the fabulous architecture (it's over 500 feet wide and has a central tower almost 200 feet high). Visitors come from all over the world to admire York Minster Cathedral. Whilst you are looking around the Minster bear in mind it took over 250 years to complete and the only devices they had then were simple levers, pulleys and hoists. Lots of Masons and Carpenters spent their entire working lives just helping to construct York Minster. Some of the features of the Minster: The ... Read the complete review

Towering over the north Yorkshire city of York, seen for miles around, is the magnificent York Minster. This cathedral is still as beautiful as ever, despite a fire destroying part of it over 20 years ago. The restoration project is ongoing to prevent the Minster decaying further and an admission charge was introduced fairly recently to help this cause. The cost as in August 2006 is around £4.00 per person, less for concessions. Step inside and admire the vaulted roof, the stained glass windows and the general peace and calmness in this inspirational building. There are guides available to explain things and guidebooks will of course ... Read the complete review
