Located within the York Minster, this 13th-century, octagonal Chapter House features unique roof vaulting: despite the building's huge size, there is no central pillar or other visible means to support the roof.

A superb example of Gothic architecture with fabulous stained glass windows and marvelous vaulted ceiling. The walls also contain some fine carvings from mouse, cats and dogs to jesters. A beautiful place to spend some time in peace.

I didn't realise that this was a separate 'place' in the Tripadvisor listings until I saw the photograph. In my mind this was part of the Minster. If you are planning to visit, you might want to look at the Minster reviews. All the same,...More
