York Minster is open daily for individual prayer and services. You can learn about the measures we’ve put in place to help keep everyone safe when they visit here.

On Sundays, services take place at the following times:

All services take place in the Nave, with entry through the West End and exit via the South Transept.

As one of our safety measures in response to the Coronavirus pandemic, we will not be giving out service books, but you can download the orders of service for Morning Prayer on Sunday Summer, Evensong Summer and The Eucharist Summer to view on your phone/device during the service.

You are also welcome to visit for individual prayer during our general opening hours, see our Plan Your Visit page to check our opening times.
