Visiting York Minster.Visit
For centuries church bells have sounded, calling people to worship, in celebration of special occasions, in remembrance and to mark special events. In celebration of the Coronation of King Charles III, York Minster’s bell ringing team will be attempting a quarter peal and a full peal as part of the nationwide celebration ‘Ring for the King.’
The Minster’s bells are the fourth heaviest ring of 12 in the world, making this attempt a truly spectacular feat. Bring a picnic to Dean’s Park and enjoy the space whilst listening to York Minster’s expert bell ringers mark this historic occasion.
Sunday 7 May 2.30pm
York Minster’s Bell Ringers will attempt a celebratory quarter peal on our bells. The team will ring a minimum of 1250 changes during the quarter peal attempt which will last around an hour.
Monday 8 May 9.30am
The cathedral’s bell ringing team will ascend the bell tower once again, this time to make a full peal attempt in honour of the new Monarch. A full peal is a real test of bell-ringing virtuosity consisting of more than 5,000 changes rung non-stop without any change being repeated. The full peal attempt will take around four hours to complete.
