Visited with young children. Quite pricey to get in but under 16s free. Best to pre book as queues can be lengthy. Activity rucksack to borrow for children to help bring the cathedral to life. Amazing stained glass and tombs. Interesting museum documenting the history...More

Been before, never really disappointed! They were especially accommodating this time with backpacks with binoculars and magnifying glass with a treasure hunt for kids

Lovely building and well worth a visit. Spent about 2 hours strolling around admiring the beauty of the building. Even had a choir singing.

York minster is a beautiful building which has been maintained to an excellent standard. The story of how the tower was saved from collapse is very interesting and makes good use of the basement. The windows are gorgeous, especially when the sun shines through. Beautiful

We visited with friends. I'd definitely recommend having a guided tour. I have been to the Minster several times previously, but learnt so much more about the history of the Minster and of York, even though I have lived here for years. If you have...More

Beautiful building which has to be seen. However I think that having tills at the entrance comes across as a little sacreligious and the cost in my opinion is too high.

I'm a big fan of cathedrals, history and stained glass so the Minster was top of my list of places I wanted to visit in York. Wow just wow. It's amazing, really beautiful inside and out. Spent about an hour and a half in there....More

For a sense of history, architecture, and well restored treasure, this is it! While a bit pricey for a religious establishment visit, I suggest you forget the price and enjoy the cornerstone of York and the area.

Queued in to the Minster. Told admission charge of £11.00 Feel that access was really for tourists and not of visitors. We came from Derby and planned the visit. Crypt well organised Tower visit cost was extra. Education sector was well organised.

11 Pound admission per adult but well worth it, the proceeds go to help maintain and restore the many massive projects underway. Take the free guided tour running every half hour. The Minster is as good as any churches and cathedrals I have toured in...More
