Watching some hardcore gothic architecture never hurt anyone. Building, it, likely another matter. As with other comparable works of art, craft and engineering, the York minster took a few good generations to build. When in such buildings I always try to imagine them in their oroginal setting - if today it still feels big, how HUGE must it have been in a time when the tallest building in the surrounding area maybe had two storeys.
