Before my last visit to Halifax, I'd never been down to the Minster, but definitely reccomend you have a look. It's a really interesting building with some great gargoyles.

This is a very beautiful church. Don't be put off by the blackened stones. Go inside and you will be rewarded with a gorgeous building with some lovely carvings and really beautiful stained glass.

One of the most atmospheric churches for a candlelit Carol Service that is the 16th Century Halifax Minster. You have to visit it to fully appreciate its interior but its exterior is so impressive
