We'd been to see the War Memorial to the north of the Minster so as we meandered back towards Church Lane the Minster was open so we thought we'd take a look in. It's a magnificent building and beautifully cared for.

Spent a couple of hours wandering around admiring the features of this wonderful old building. Even better returning the following day to join the congregation for their Palm Sunday communion. A joy to enter a church and to be welcomed.

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...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...More
