York Minster is open daily for sightseeing. Tickets must be booked in advance and are available here.

We’ve kept a number of measures in place to help keep our staff, volunteers and visitors safe.

Additional measures announced as part of the Government’s Plan B – such as the mandatory wearing of face coverings – will also come into force. Due to the ongoing Covid restrictions, Hidden Minster tours will be postponed and the Central Tower will be closed to visitors until further notice.
The protocols that we have had in place for many months to keep our staff and visitors safe will continue. Admission and exit might take us a little longer than normal: please bear with us. We are grateful for your patience and continued support for York Minster.

Details about our safety measures are available here.
