Experience the popular York Minster Christmas Tree Festival, set inside the medieval Minster, with 60 trees on display in the cathedral’s stunning Nave, Chapter House and Lady Chapel.

Explore the trees, which will be decorated to individual themes by local businesses, schools and charities, vote for your favourite in our ‘best dressed tree’ competition, and add your own Christmas message to a tag on the festival’s prayer trees.

The festival will open on Saturday 2 December at 10am and will run during general admission times until Friday 5 January.

Entry is free with general admission.

Visitors can also follow our Christmas Tree Trail to spot trees and their decorations around the cathedral.

Please note, the trees may feature flashing lights.
