It only took two and a half years of living in York to finally go inside the minster. I did visit on a school trip back in around 2002, but I don’t remember much about the trip.
The present building was started in 1230. It’s a stunning building with lots to see, as well as a crypt and a museum under it. Sadly, the organ was having some work done and wasn’t visible when we went.
I’ll leave you with the photos, they can describe it better than I can!
