Amazing church with so many different parts used for various activities, including art exhibitions. The stained glass windows are so beautiful and take your breath away. Friendly volunteers gave lots of information and memories of the Minster history. Well worth a visit.

Dates from 15th Century, but with Monastic connections of much earlier times. A helpful lady attendant provided us with a self guided tour leaflet, which was very useful. Take a little time out to visit this historic and peaceful place in the City Centre.

This building is well worth a visit. It is only minutes away from Piece Hall and is very old and unusual. The architecture and history of the church are remarkable. Helpful attendants in there too.
