Experience history at every turn at one of the nation's greatest treasures. There's more to see and do than ever before, from tailored tours to new exhibitions.
For the best views over York, climb the Minster Tower. Costs a few pounds - and you need to be in shape for the climb - but well worth it.
Don't climb the tower - opt for Clifford's tower instead! You want a view with the Minster, right?
If you live in or near York, you can get a Minster card which gets you free entry. Alternatively you can believe in God and go to a service.
£9 to go in, ouch!
After the Minster, check out the church next door - St Michael le Belfrey - built originally as a chapel for the Minster builders. It's free entry and still a functioning church - lovely atmosphere.
Great place to be
Go at around 5pm and listen to the ball ringers practicing
If you are visiting on a Wednesday or Friday, look into booking a special tour of the Glass Conservation Studio at Bedern Chapel for a close-up view of mediaeval stained glass under restoration.
Visit the 'A book fit for a King' exhibition at the Old Palace (12p-4p, until 30 Nov) and turn the pages of an original 1611 King James Bible. Admission is free with your Minster admission ticket!
The tour (with David) was worth having for some background on the architecture and the idiosyncrasies of the minster. Look out for the recent bosses on the ceiling, including one of Neil Armstrong!
Undercroft refurb is well worth a visit and is included in general admission. Great views from the top of the tower (up 280+ steps) although it's an extra £5 on the standard admission price.
Go on one of the night tours - well worth it to see the bits that are normally closed. Go for the earlier trip if you want to hear Big Peter ring.
The tour with Mike was excellent.
Even if you aren't religious check out the evensong. Spine tingling music for free.
Beautiful but ridiculously expensive, £15 for tower and church!!!!
Admission is valid for 12 months.
If you can take the tour. There's one every 30 mins just ahead the entrance.
Can recommend visiting the tower, but be ready for lots or steps, not for the asthmatics !
Dress warm, it gets very chilly, particularly in winter!
The Police Roll of Honour Trust Board of Trustees were here for National Police Memorial Day 2012. The Minster is incredible and an amazing setting for our national tribute to our fallen.
Saved £18 by 2 of us not going in :-)
Now available on Monday, Wednesday and Fridays! Book a special tour of the Glass Conservation Studio at Bedern Chapel for a close-up view of medieval stained glass under restoration.
