Great welcome upon arrival. Someone there to point things out to us if we needed it. No pressure to hurry up with visit. We stayed ages and just sought the offered help when we wanted to. Building is magnificent and extremely interesting. Great to see loads of evidence of it being regularly used by people of all ages. Lovely little... More

We spent a fascinating hour last Friday morning visiting the Flower Festival to celebrate the Duke of Wellington's Regiment and the Bicentenary of the Battle of Waterloo. The Minster interior had been transformed from its usual somewhat sombre atmosphere to a place of light and colour, from the many beautiful displays created by the Halifax Flower Club. Congratulations to all... More

Cold unfriendly, unless you are into local history. the only reason to visit. By the way ... it's NOT a Minster , it's a PARISH CHURCH!!

It's lovely to hear the bells ringing at the Minster. We attended a wedding here it was beautifully decorated and fabulous church that's over 900 years old and very well looked after.

Alighting from the railway station you might be forgiven for thinking that the elegant spire head of you is the minster. Wrong. The spire is the remains of an old chapel near the Piece Hall. The minster is the sooty little parish church down the rise to the right of you. A more unprepossessing minster it would be hard to... More

Very interesting to look around and more should be advertised about it. Just a pity it is at the bottom end of the town and I think this puts people off. Didn,t go up the tower but it is possible to sometimes and there are guided tours sometimes.

A beautiful church that's very lovely. Must have nice history. Been there for funeral and Christmas service, I do think they purposely set butterflies out to make it look as if the person is there but I find it quite rude almost that they're making people believe that. Apart from that nice but could do with a warm up!

A 900 yr old church with lots of fascinating history. The stewards were very friendly and knowledgeable, it was so interesting . Part of Halifax's history it is a must to see.

Stunning church with exquisite stained glass windows. I attended a morning family communion service with integrated Christening. All stewards and officials were warm and welcoming and the officiating clergy were friendly and had a modern outlook. Great occasion.
