York Minster

In the city of York, Yorkshire on the A19
Tel. 01904 639347

York's cathedral is the largest Gothic cathedral in northern Europe. It is 534-ft (160m) long and 249-ft (76m) wide across the transepts. Begun in 1220 and completed in 1470, its nave is the second highest in England. Look for the medieval glass in the east window of the Lady Chapel. The Chapter House, built at the end of the 1200's, has a magnificent wooden vaulted ceiling. There is a beautiful 15th century choir screen. The largest collection of medieval stained glass in England is found in the Cathedral. Be sure to see the treasury's collection of silver and church plate, and don't miss the fascinating Foundations Exhibition. Located in a subterranean area of the cathedral, the exhibit displays the early Norman cathedral foundations and the remains of a Roman building on the site. Web site.
