The glorious York Minster towers over this extraordinarily pretty UK city and is a must-visit when touring York. The minster is the chief church of the Church of England and the present building is the largest gothic cathedral in Northern Europe. This is the setting for some of the finest 14th and 15th century stained glass windows in existence and you could sit and spend all afternoon gazing at their beauty and contemplating the many worshippers who must have passed before them. Revealing York Minster is a network of galleries housed in the undercroft and treasury below the cathedral and it tells the colourful story of the building as far back as Roman garrison times. You'll learn about the site's construction too, from the early Norman foundations to the 20th century engineering that supports the central tower. The undercroft also houses what remains of York´s Roman Legionary fortress, Viking gravestones and artefacts from the Minster´s collection.
York Minster Undercroft Treasury & Crypt also has a Museum / Art Gallery:
