Located within the York Minster, this 13th-century, octagonal Chapter House features unique roof vaulting: despite the building's huge size, there is no central pillar or other visible means to support the roof.

Located within the Minster, the chapter house is where church potentates would meet to make decisions. It is a grand, striking area and definitely a highlight of a visit to the Minster.

The chapter house is a part of York Mi stet. A simply stunning room. The fact roof is incredible and an early example of the architecture used. Don't miss it if you are visiting. You can just sit and enjoy the peace.
