Open till 2pm during winter daily, so had chance for quick look around and some insight from a very helpful administrator. Some fascinating and quirky items.

So much history set in the hart of the town. beautiful stone work. to the building. A warm welcome awaits you. If you are lucky to visit for a wedding the church bells lift your soul.

“Essence of Tranquility and Inspiration”
Reviewed January 24, 2013

During 2012 we visited this beautiful Minster several times and each visit was special in many different ways. The gentleman who gave us vast historic information on the site and building was both courteous and knowledgeable. The stain glass windows are of exceptional beauty as is the architectural integrity of the church. The lasting inspirational experience for us however was the 'Service of Light' before Christmas which was conducted so sensitively by the organisers and presented so beautifully by the readers and celebrants.

“Beautiful architecture”

We went to a service in the minster last year as my daughter was singing there. It was a lovely night and the minster interior is spectacular.
