Not sure the difference between a minster and a church, or a cathedral for that matter. York has a minster and is a city, Beverly is a town! Answers on a post card. Still it is a fascinating building and well worth a visit.

Such a lovely building dominating the town. It's well worth a visit to see the glass windows and history of the building. It's free entry and they only ask for a donation. There's also free toilets. Well worth a visit.

I was able to park outside the minster, though it was for two hours. I remember reading about the place, years ago, and about it having a famous Percy tomb. I didn't walk in, through the main entrance, instead through a side one which also...More

Great history, beautiful inside and out. Free car park for visitors. Used in the filming of the TV programme Victoria. Doesn't need much more to say about it, other than it's worth a visit
