With only 18 hours in York, we checked into the quaint Mount Royale Hotel and then went directly to the Minster. We made it in time to climb to the top and, lucky timing for us, we were just in time for the 5:15 Evensong. The sang at the entrance of the inner chapel area and then we hear them as we climbed the stairs to the top. It was truly a magical sound.
