This is a really good church to visit and take a good look around the outside and the inside. The volunteers are extremely friendly and helpful. The are items to purchase from the little shop. At least an hour can we spent just looking around the inside at all the artifacts a leaflet is available to help and inform.

As living in Halifax I have visited The Minster on many occasions, from childhood as it was then known as Halifax Parish Church. It was only when the Songs of Praise came to Halifax I realised how beautiful the ceiling was. A great part of the church centuries old. It was believed that this was once the church that was...

Wonderful building, lovely service and such well behaved students. Wow We would recommend a visit here. Close to Eureka centre and railway station. Strolling distance of bus station. A good place for quiet reflection.

The old pews and furniture are really lovely too and there are lots of interesting things to read both on the walls and the floor. It is well worth a visit if... More

It is a typical medieval church with huge stained glass windows and a Gothic look. As I was staying nearby, I walked there and spent a few minutes there and around the garden.

From the outside this piece of religious history is slightly different looking to your standard churches or minsters but it is a subtle difference, but inside this wonderful building offers many hidden secrets, the magnificent tudor roof of the main chapel almost transports you back to a forgotten age, and the dark wooden pews show there age and history, in...

The church looks special from the outside and has a holy feel inside. The staff ignore you when you come in though.
