Tour starts at the bottom of the Minster's twin towers at 19:30. Price is more or less symbolic (4£). Tour is very entertaining, interesting and amusing. Our guide Greg was fantastic. A really nice way to spend an hour of your evening time.

Charles was our guide on this tour. He did a good job of making the walk entertaining. It was a fairly large group and the stories CHARLES told included history, folklore, humor, and drama. Overall a nice tour on a nice night in York.
