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.

A bit in the back streets but not far from the Piece Hall so they need to get some signposting. Guides were knowledgeable
