The Chapter House at York Minster in York is a large octagonal room built as a place for the governing body of the cathedral to hold meetings. This lovely light-filled space was completed in 1290 and it is filled with wonderful carvings and stained glass with the whole thing topped by this spectacular domed ceiling, done in the "Decorated Gothic" style popular at the time. The paintings on the ceiling date from 1795 but the ribs and bosses are original. York has been on my bucket list and it didn't disappoint!
