Reasons for trip

I love visiting York Minster. My father came from York, so we were there regularly visiting my grandmother. Whenever I go back there, I always go into the Minster to remember and admire all over again.

Not this time! Covid has changed everything!!

Now you must pre-book! We hadn’t, so were turned away and were advised to use our phones to book through the suggested website. Standing outside on the steps, it was impossible to get through, even with two of us trying, we were unable to log on.

We only had one day in York, so for the first time in my life I had to leave without going into this wonderful building – which was so disappointing!

Is it really impossible to have a ticket booth (like the Castle Museum) for those who haven’t planned ahead, or for older people who may not be so familiar with online booking?
