We came as part of a short break staying at a hotel at the edge of Halifax. Found out about a free organ concert at Halifax Minster and spent the whole day in the town.

We were welcomed by a friendly lady who not only told us all about what was happening on the day (lunch and concert), but also gave us a leaflet about the building. She was also happy to provide us with any additional information about the church.

The organ concert was one of a series of music by Mendelssohn most expertly played by Simon Lindley and well introduced. The concert was free with a retiring collection. Before the concert there was the opportunity to partake in a parish lunch for an amazing £4 which was brilliant value considering all there was on offer! All the money from today's events were part of fund-raising for the Minster. It was really nice to see the initiatives to make fund-raising so much fun for locals and visitors. Thumbs up!

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.

Helpful, friendly guides and worth a visit as a lot of history. Look round at the windows, monuments and the gravestones.

Not a lot to say the minster is steeped in history, stands in tree shrouded gardens within walking distance of the town centre
