The cost of visiting York's historic Minster has been increased for the second time since charges were introduced in 2003.
Before the charges, the Minster relied on visitors' donations alone
Prices have gone up by 50p to £5.50 for an adult ticket and to £4.50 for senior citizens and students. York residents will still get free entry.
The decision to charge out-of-town visitors was taken four years ago as the Minster faced a financial crisis.
A new "see-all" ticket with access to the tower and crypt will cost £9.
People attending a service of worship or going to the church to pray or light a candle will also be exempted from paying.
A statement on the Minster website said: "The Dean and Chapter regrets that it is necessary to charge visitors an entry price at all.
"However, visitor entry prices account for over one third of all income and without it, the Dean and Chapter would simply be unable to sustain the life and work of the Minster.
"The Dean and Chapter receive no assistance from any outside agencies, except for grants for which application needs to be made. Otherwise, all funds to sustain the Minster need to be raised by the Dean and Chapter."
