My daughter was baptised in this Minster a year ago, my wife and I didn't know what to expect regarding the building, or the vicar but on both accounts we were very happy. The Minster is very welcoming friendly, and the Minster building itself is quite frankly stunning. It's so well hidden from the bustle of the town it really... More

I've been to 2 gigs at the Minster now and it's a wonderful venue and heartily recommended. Even if you're not attending a gig, it's worth popping your head in to see how grand the building is inside.

The Minster dates back in part to the late 15th century and is a beautifully preserved, most magnificient structure. The present organ dates back to 1928-29 and has the most wonderful sound. Well worth a visit although I don't think I will climb the bell tower again!

We were passing the Minster when we decided to park up and go inside. I'm so glad we did. The Minster grounds are beautiful, set above road level, surrounded by trees to one side and to the rear, a courtyard, behind which stands the wonderful Causey Hall, a Grade II listed building. The outside of the Minster is full of... More

fantastic old church building holds services every Sunday including evensong. Wonderful small choir directed by Christopher Brown and superb traditional church organ with beautiful sound. A short walk from Eureka childrens museum

Just happened to be there at the right time. Interesting surroundings with a spectacular font-cover and organ music to accompany them. Helpers there also put me in touch with a man who happened to know significant details of my family.

Visited over this year’s Heritage Weekend (http://www.heritageopendays.org.uk/) and as well as a guided tour around the Minster, we were lucky enough to be able to climb the tower. After a long and steep climb (not good for those with no head for heights or small spaces) we reached the top and got to see Halifax from a very unique perspective.... More
