Lockdown trip

Rated:

Decided to explore my own country of birth during partial lockdown in the late summer of 2020 and this cathedral has the character to match Florence and st pats in NY. Didn't realise we had such elegance up north lol.

Top architecture

Rated:

One of the most architecturally impressive cathedrals that i have visited across the world. The medieval style, detailing and finish on both stone and glass is a sight to behold.

York Minster...

Rated:

Easily the most impressive religious place in the UK. Such stunning architecture. Its stone masterpieces are indeed a sight to behold. Maybe the admission is slightly expensive but that would be the only downside of visiting. The access and information you get for that is still very good.

One of the best

Rated:

One of the better cathedrals in the world nevermind the UK. This cathedral is up there with St Pats in NY and Florence for me. Great architecture. Good views from the tower, friendly and knowledgeable staff.

Underrated

Rated:

Probably one of the most underrated cathedrals in the UK, its huge and has stunning architecture. We visited the Minster and Tower, which is maybe a little costly at £15 each but we thought it was worth it for the views over York.
