It is the undoubtedly magnificent cathedral of York–and here I give you the pics.
Dean’s Park. It was wort it coming here in autumn, for sure.
In addition to the normal entry fee (£11.50, valid for 12 months), you can also purchase a trip to the tower for an extra fiver. This means climbing up 275 steps. When I was offered this, my immediate thought was, I probably won’t regret it, so I said yes.
I didn’t regret it.
Although when the woman selling the tickets told me about 275 steps, it never occurred to me it would be this:
I’ve never climbed that high up a spiral staircase, so yay for another new experience!
Trips up the tower are done in groups at regular intervals, so I just joined the next available one.
Reward in the form of panoramatic view of York.
