Wonderful building, lovely service and such well behaved students. Wow We would recommend a visit here. Close to Eureka centre and railway station. Strolling distance of bus station. A good place for quiet reflection.

What a beautiful building this is both inside and out. We attended a piano recital recently and the acoustics were just brilliant and the ambience was just great. The old pews and furniture are really lovely too and there are lots of interesting things to read both on the walls and the floor. It is well worth a visit if... More

It is a typical medieval church with huge stained glass windows and a Gothic look. As I was staying nearby, I walked there and spent a few minutes there and around the garden.

From the outside this piece of religious history is slightly different looking to your standard churches or minsters but it is a subtle difference, but inside this wonderful building offers many hidden secrets, the magnificent tudor roof of the main chapel almost transports you back to a forgotten age, and the dark wooden pews show there age and history, in...

The church looks special from the outside and has a holy feel inside. The staff ignore you when you come in though.

A delightful old church in a friendly town setting. Halifax Minster is at the bottom of the town, it is open regularly for people to visit and you may even catch the end of a choir practice or service. The staff are very welcoming, informative and friendly. There is a brilliant little gift shop.
