About us

Since the 7th century, the Minster has been at the centre of Christianity in the north of England and today remains a thriving church rooted in the daily offering of worship and prayer. The Minster was built for the glory of God. Every aspect of this ancient building - from the exquisite, handcrafted stone through to the unrivalled collection of medieval stained glass - tells the story of Jesus Christ. We invite you to discover this sacred place and the love of God at its heart, which has attracted people from across the globe for more than 1000 years.  

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.
