Built over 250 years, York Minster has been the focal point of the city since the 7th century. Strolling around the magnificent cathedral you will find: The Nave - The widest gothic nave in England dates back to 1291 and contains unrivalled medieval stained glass, look out for the Heart of Yorkshire in the great west window. The Chapter House - This revolutionary piece of engineering for its time, created an octagonal room with a vaulted ceiling resulting in the absence of a central column. The Undercroft Museum - Beneath the Minister lies a museum exploring the excavations of the site, a roman fortress was discovered and many of the artefacts found are on display. For an even more detailed look, the hidden minister tour allows entrance to spaces usually closed to the public with an expert guide. Tours can be taken around the crypt passages, the stone yard and the chapter house roof. Image Credit Suicasmo - https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Interior_of_York_Minster_20180502-1.jpg
