York Minster - York
A brief description of the attraction York Minster - York
Yorks most famous land mark. A must see. Even now when I'm walking past I stop and look up.The Minster is located right in the Town so there's no excuse to take five minutes out of your busy shopping trip and take a look. The grounds of the Minster are a great place to relax or watch the stonemasons at work as they use traditional methods to repair the huge stone work of the Minster. The largest Gothic Cathedral north of the Alps, the Minster was built on what was the headquarters of a Roman fortress.
The current building was started in 1220 by Archbishop Walter de Grey, who, with his Dean and Chapter, decided to rebuild the Norman Minster on a scale to rival Canterbury.
The Minster wasn't completed until 1472, although t was in use for much of the ensuing period. You can go from the bottom of the Minster right up to the top with a visit to the Central Tower. From the top of the tower on a clear day, the sights are breath taking. Adult £14
