This lovely 16th century little church is overshadowed by York Minster, but it is located right next to it and is certainly worth a quick visit. I would not even remotely compare it with majestic York Minster, but I did enjoy my 15 minutes visit...More

The station is in a good location to the City Centre, easy accessible via walking or by taxi or bus. Ample taxi's on hand if need one. Also plenty of places to have a brew.

After visiting York Minster this is the next place to go if you like history and architecture. A 16th century wonder.

A lovely place with beautiful architecture and interesting windows. I would have liked to have attended a service there as I think the building had a wonderful atmosphere. Definitely worth a visit.
