York Minster invites everyone to discover God’s love through our welcome, worship, learning and work.

For over a millennium, people have come to seek inspiration in this place of wonder. York Minster is one of the world’s most magnificent cathedrals, a masterpiece in stained-glass and stone, with foundations rooted in the nation’s earliest history. Its vast spaces are brought to life with the glory of worship and heavenly music.

Today as a working cathedral, we welcome visitors from around the world to share in our daily life and worship, explore the past and enjoy a busy programme of events and concerts.  This wonderful heritage belongs to us all, and we invite you to experience it for yourself.
