York Minster is one of the largest Gothic Cathedrals in Europe. Its construction took over 250 years. The main works were completed in the late XVth century. Although huge and austere, its interiors seem to be very warm, with much light inside. The architecture inside is not coherent. It is a mixture of different architectural solutions and variety of details, all of course within the Gothic style.

The highlights are the main nave broken in two parts making the impression of getting lower at its end, 16 m high stained glass windows as well as the choir interior. Below some photo impressions.
