A really rather wonderful building, with passionate staff on-hand to give info. Went to a gig here too recently, which I think is a wonderful way for religious buildings such as this to adapt and thrive. The Minster was candlelit for the event, welcoming a band from the USA, and really did feel like quite a special occasion, even letting... More

Very interesting gem. Excellent and helpful but discreet guide. First time I'd ever seen Commonwealth windows - un-stained glass from Cromwell's time, and I thought they were beautiful.

What a spectacular building. Not only did we get to have a tour of the building we learned so much about the history too. All the children we took we aged between 6 and 14 they all had a fabulous time. All went away and wrote there own review for a scout badge. Thankyou for such a great tour. Highly... More

What catches the eye are the vivid and colourful stained glass windows. Most of the originals were replaced during the Victorian era, but some medieval glass survives in the western part of the minster. The Jacobean box pews are also a special feature worth seeing.

I was here Easter Monday to attend a wedding. Not only was it a lovely service but the church was beautiful. Lots of big stained glass windows and steeped in history. Everyone working there was very polite and helpful. I will definitely go back there with my camera to capture the craftsmanship and historic features.

All right, it's really St John's, or the Parish Church, don't know where the Minster bit came from (I believe Leeds Parish Church, the blackest hole outside Calcutta, is also a Minster now). But it's a big old church, wide, long, quite low, full of old bench-ends and monuments to local dignitaries, beautiful windows, a regimental chapel. And Old Tristram,... More

My husband I stopped off in Halifax on our way home to the Midlands and I was intrigued to see a sign for Halifax Minster, not having been aware that there was such a building. I'm so glad we did! It's a smaller Minster than most, so please don't be expecting York, however I actually have to say I prefer... More
