This is a church that believes what it says and puts it into practice. A wonderful piece of history that is not content to remain in the past but brings a culturally relevant outward facing approach to the numerous tourists and local people who visit

This is a beautiful building and it's situated next to York Minster. I would defiantly recommend this to visitors to York.
