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

What a lovely place to spend time looking around, quite peaceful and serene. Friendly volunteers on hand to answer any questions you would like to ask. Well worth a visit

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

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

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
