From the outside I could imagine myself muttering “could do with a bit of money spent on it”. The exterior is crying out for some restoration. However, when you get inside you will realise just how fantastically old this church is. 900 years of history...More

Been to Halifax many years ago as used to live nearby. Never knew this place existed. 900 year old buildings and grounds full of beauty and history. A must if you visit Halifax

Although I had been in Halifax several times I had never visited the Minster and I dare say it was a big mistake for it's a most interesting place and a beautiful gothic church.
