Simply put – the best tour in York.
The York Minster is a truly stunning attraction, and is one of the largest cathedrals in Northern Europe. The first church on this site dates back to 627AD (note, not 1627AD, but 627AD!) and the result of its various incarnations is nothing but an architectural marvel. The tour will also cover the English Reformation and its effect on the Minster, perhaps one of the most profound events in English history, the effects of which are still being felt today.
This tour will cover both history and architecture – but in a way that can really hold your interest! Many of the tour guides are local history students; all are well-versed in York’s unique history and keen to share it with visitors. Over the course of the walking tour, they’ll work tirelessly to show you a truly memorable experience. With this tour we have a small group guarantee, which ensures you will have more time to discuss any questions you have with our guides.
