Deangate, YORK, YO1 7HH
Explore York's world-class cathedral with its medieval stained glass, 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 there are also quiet corners revealing great treasures, unexpected stories and human inspiration. 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. 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 are free discovery trails, and children can make friends with the Minster's own Monkey, Monty. 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.
