It may be worth checking out York Minster's website to see if there are any special events or seasonal fun things to do that may be going on during the day.


We do strongly suggest you contact York Minster before you set off on your family day out, just to make sure they are open and to confirm admission prices, as there is nothing worse than disappointed kids in the back of your car after a long journey.
