Welcome to York Minster

York Minster

For over 1,000 years, York Minster has been a principal place of worship for the York area. The largest Gothic cathedral in Europe, this impressive building is open to the public and visitors can enjoy the peace and beauty of the interior of the church and its many stained glass windows, including the well-known Rose window, and marvel at the fascinating ancient remains beneath the church in the Undercroft and spectacular views from the top of the tower 275 steps up. Audio tours are available. York Minster also has its own gift shop, as well as a restaurant/café.
