York Minster has been undergoing a bit of an update recently, thanks to the support of the Heritage Lottery Fund in the UK. As part of this 5 year revamp, a new exhibition has been opened which has me green with envy. Perhaps I should start saving again for another trip to the UK.

The Exhibition is entitled ‘Revealing York Minster‘ which puts on show an interactive display of artefacts and artwork detailing the Church’s History. From the Roman Garrison on which it is positioned to its earliest Anglo-Saxon inception and various medieval reincarnations, the story of the Church is much more than bricks and mortar and sunday sermons, and from the looks of the photos and the website there is sure to be something for everyone to enjoy.

The exhibition is now open and admission prices for York Minster are £10 for adults and £9 for concessions and are valid for a full 12 months. Children get in free with a paying adult.
