  • I like visiting cathedrals and York is one of the best but the tower isn't as good as others. It's not as high as some and the view is OK but not spectacular. Also, the ere is only one staircase up an...  more »
  • This is for people who want to see York from up high. It's quite a stair climb to the top. Explicit notice is given that it is difficult to get to and one should not attempt it unless they are physica...  more »
  • A stunning, not only of the city but surrounding also. And Furthermore, within a very attractive Cathedral. Super recommended! Attention: we must go up stairs, not suitable for people with mobility difficulties.

  • Massive space. Your entry ticket allows you to wander through every last nook in the cathedral. For an extra cost, you can head up to the tower (assuming your fit enough to climb the 275 steps); views from above are spectacular!
  • I visited the Minster from Australia just before closing time yesterday. I would recommend allowing a whole afternoon there. The staff were warm, friendly and knowledgeable. I will be back again one day for a more thorough look around, and maybe even attend an Evensong service.
  • Such a shame that the Dean is behaving in such a ludicrous way and not speaking with the wonderful bell ringers, his excuse is basically "It's Sunday, I'm busy!' Dean, wake up, be a Christian, get back your wonderful bell ringers with a grovelling apology. Your Lord, Jesus Christ was not afraid to say sorry, take a leaf out of his book, according to you, it is the Good Book! Learn by it and move forward Many wonder why church congregations are dwindling, need I say more? Dr John, please bring this member of your flock under control, he's in need of a little guidance I feel and bringing in the extra expense of 'professional bell ringers' is absurd. It costs enough you visit God's House (other cheaper places of worship are available dear reader) without the added expense of their wages You have some wonderful bell ringers there who do it for the love of it, what better reason can anyone have? Cherish them, praise them, look after them and whatever you do, don't send them elsewhere.
  • At first I was a bit disappointed because the main stained glass window was under renovation but I was invited to join a choral evensong (though I said I was Catholic) and it was a revelation. The choir made up of boys and adults sang so movingly beautifully that it gave me goosebumps. An unforgettable experience, indeed. The minster inside is a vast building, you can spend there a few hours...
  • You can pay just to visit the church and the undercroft or include the tower visit. Definitely worth the full ticket. Church inside is wonderful. Tower is amazing for its construction and on the undercroft you can see all details about the repair done to avoid the church to collapse.
