York Minster’s Dean’s Park, the popular green space which runs along the north side of the cathedral, will reopen from Monday, 1 June.

The park, which has been closed to the public since the 23 March as part of the Minster’s response to the Coronavirus pandemic, will be open daily from 10am to 6pm.

People using the area are asked to respect Government advice and social distancing guidance by remaining at least 2m apart from others outside of their group at all times to ensure the park remains open for all.

Please note that ball games, smoking, alcohol and dogs are not permitted.

The cathedral and its wider precinct currently remain closed to the public while its governing body, the Chapter of York, plan how to safely reopen for worship and sightseeing, in line with advice from Government and Public Health England.
