This was a very interesting place to visit, although very cold in all of the rooms, especially in Wintertime. The staff are very informative, and on hand to discuss points of interest. The Gardens are lovely, and so peaceful

You can purchase on line. I highly recommend if you are going to visit several attractions getting the one day York city pass from the visit York tourism shop by the Minster. Will save you money. Only good for the day.
