Quite magnificent. The whole of York minster is wonderful but the rose window should be on the list of things to visit for anyone going to York as a tourist.

The rebuilding of the rose window is an incredible story and told well by the guides and exhibition. I highly recommend joining one of the tours that start at the entrance. Once you have purchased your entry ticket, the tour itself is free.
