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.

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
