Western front of the cathedral.
York, England.

York Minster is a Gothic cathedral in York, England and is one of the largest of its kind in Northern Europe alongside Cologne Cathedral. The Minster is the seat of the Archbishop of York, the second-highest office of the Church of England, and is cathedral for the Diocese of York; it is run by a Dean and Chapter under the Dean of York. The formal title of York Minster is The Cathedral and Metropolitical Church of St Peter in York. The title “Minster” is attributed to churches established in the Anglo Saxon period as missionary teaching churches, and serves now as an honorific title. Services in the Minster are sometimes regarded as on the High Church, Anglo-Catholic end of the Anglican continuum.

It has a very wide Decorated Gothic nave and chapter house, a Perpendicular Gothic choir and east end, and Early English north and south transepts. The nave contains the West Window, constructed in 1338, and over the Lady Chapel in the east end is the Great East Window, (finished in 1408), the largest expanse of medieval stained glass in the world. In the north transept is the Five Sisters Window, each lancet being over 16 metres (52 ft) high. The south transept contains the famous Rose window.

The Minster took about 250 years to build and is renowned as an artistic and architectural masterpiece. In this centre for Christian worship there is a wealth of history to be discovered.

You can visit the Octagonal Chapter house which was constructed between 1260 to 1286. Its walls contain some of the Minster’s finest carvings, most dating from 1270 to 1280.

Underneath the Cathedral you can explore the Undercroft, Treasury and Crypt. Here you will find Roman, Norman and Viking remains and the jewels of the treasury. (Sources: Wikipedia & Tourist Info UK)
