About us

Explore York’s world-class cathedral with its medieval stained glass and stone masterpieces and foundations rooted in the nation's earliest history. York Minster’s vast spaces come alive with the sanctity and tradition of worship and heavenly music, but you can also find quiet corners revealing great treasures, unexpected stories and human inspiration. What will you discover?

Take a fascinating 2000 year journey through interactive underground chambers in Revealing York Minster in the Undercroft. Follow in the footsteps of Roman soldiers and discover the stories of some of the people whose lives have been influenced by York Minster. The underground chambers have been totally transformed with dynamic new audio-visual and interactive galleries revealing the significance behind the cathedral's most treasured artefacts as never before.


See the best views in York after climbing the 275 steps up the Central Tower leading you to the highest point in the city.

Explorer Backpacks are available to younger visitors and contain everything a budding detective needs to uncover secrets and surprises. There's free discovery trails and make a new friend with the Minster's own Monkey, Monty. After all that exploring relax in the children's chapel with a book from the story chest.

All year round, there is also a magnificent programme of special events, including performances by the Minster Choir, one of the UK's leading choirs and hands-on family fun activities.

Listed as one of the History and Heritage Experiences in Visit England's '101 things to do before you go abroad.'

Recommended by Wallace & Gromit as one of the 'Cracking things to see and do.'

The local legend about the 'Heart of Yorkshire' window, which is a part of the cathedral's Great West Window, states that all the loved up couples to kiss under the window will stay together forever...
