About York Minster, York

The city of York has had a long, eventful association with Christianity that was established as early as the 4th Century.

The York Minster was first built in 600 AD but as power changed hands in York, the cathedral went through the unfortunate incidents of fire, destruction time and time again. It wasn’t until 1472 that the Minster was remodelled and completed in the form it stands today.

The Cathedral is the largest of its kind in Europe and adorned with elaborate designs and sculptures reflecting the finest Gothic artwork.

Exploring this ornate and majestic structure is such a pleasurable experience! The West Window of the Minster was constructed in 1338 and contains the ‘Heart of Yorkshire’. Legend has it that any couple that kisses under this window will stay together through eternity. The Rose Window of the York Minster is a hallmark of Gothic Design across Europe.

  • The cathedral has a fine collection of beautiful stained class, some almost 900 years old. The glass you see today was imported from Germany to be stained and assembled here. All of the millions of pieces of stained glass were taken down during the two World Wars and later reassembled.
  • The underground chambers of the Church are open for visitors to explore. Here you can still see the Roman foundations of the church. Interactive displays give you access to information about influential people associated with the church and its prized artefacts.
  • Climb the cathedral tower! Climb the 275 steps of the central tower to get to the highest point of the city.
  • The cathedral often holds special events for families and children during the summer months. It is an absolute delight to hear the Minster Choir perform.
  • ‘York Minster Revealed’ – will give you an insight into York of the Dark Ages through a collection of materials discovered during a 2012 excavation. The Orb showcases some of the finest examples of Europe’s stained glass work. 

The carillon of bells at the Minster is obviously put to good use for church service, but it is fairly common to hear popular tunes emanating from the cathedral before Evensong commences. The York Minster makes for an intense and enigmatic experience for one and all.
