WELCOME TO YORK MINSTER

The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York

York Minster is one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals.

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.
