York Minster is one of the world's most magnificent cathedrals, a masterpiece in stained-glass and stone, with foundations rooted in the nation's earliest history. Experience its vast spaces brought to life with the glory of worship and heavenly music or find quiet corners revealing great treasures, unexpected stories, and human inspiration. York Minster is one of the largest medieval Gothic cathedrals in Northern Europe and is custodian to important and irreplaceable art from this period. The current building is around 800 years old and is at least the second Minster to stand in this location, but the history of the site dates back almost 2,000 years.

Take a guided tour to experience the complete story of York Minster. Learn more about its art, history, and music and how these have changed with York over the centuries. See, touch, and hear 2000 years of history as you unlock the secrets of this breath-taking building and its people by visiting "Revealing York Minster in the Undercroft". Follow in the footsteps of Roman soldiers by taking an immersive journey through interactive state-of-the-art chambers beneath the cathedral. Learn about the history of the site, covering its story as a center for military, politics, and theology which has influenced both the region's and the nation's history, and see some of the cathedral's artifacts on display as never before.

Explorer Backpacks are available to younger visitors and contain everything a budding detective needs to uncover secrets and surprises. There's free family discovery trails and children can even make a new friend with the Minster's own mischievous Monkey, Monty. All year round, there is a magnificent programme of exhibitions, special events and services, including performances by the Choir of York Minster, one of the UK's leading choirs.
