Central Tower Trips
There’s no better place for sightseeing in York than from the top of York Minster’s medieval central tower, the highest point in the whole of York.
Climb up the winding tower of 275 steps and 230 feet, passing the medieval pinnacles and gothic gargoyles before stepping out into the open air to experience the best panoramic views of York’s picturesque city centre, spy the hidden alleyways and medieval lanes and beyond the beautiful surrounding Yorkshire countryside.
If you’re only taking a day trip to York or perhaps are visiting for a weekend break, climbing the central tower is one of the must-do activities in York.
