“York Minster: More than a cathedral”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

It is more than a simple beautiful cathedral in the centre of York. Its architecture shows us not only Gothic but also history and how that magnificent building was built in those times.

“A real tribute”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

They have poured a ton of money intopreserving the lower roman levels and explaining how generations build one upon the other, they never do explain why the exteriors and road got higher as well but they never do.

Worth the visit

“more than impressive”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

Well deserving of a visit, but not a hurried one. You need to spend time here, taking in the stunning architecture, the ambience, and the history. Well worth the price.

“Nice church!”
Reviewed 21 August 2014 via mobile

A nice and gigantic church! The pass is valid for a year so you can keep it for your next visit if you are going to York again within a year.

“Time well spent”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

This Minster is beautiful and I would recommend the free tour as well. The guide tells you a lot of interesting things you would never see on your own and made it much more worth it. The Minster is beautiful and if you are lucky you can hear the choir practice which sounds amazing and is a really neat experience.
