The internals of the Minster are exceptional and can leave you breathless! However the site of the minister in it's evening lights is something else. Definitely the most beautiful minister in South Yorkshire.

This is quite a new minster, nice but cannot be compared to a Cathedral. It's Worth a visit if you are in Doncaster on a daytrip. It worked well to cross the road from the shopping streets and reach the minster from there.

The Minster is a really lovely church, very peaceful even though it was being decorated with greenery for Advent. Well worth a visit to see all the beautiful stained glass windows.

This is one of two rarely highlighted beautiful churches which Doncaster has to offer. Attractive architecture and still not too bad a setting.

Met at the door by a very knowledgeable lady who gave us a very helpful history. The stained glass windows are really colourful and lovely. The history was very interesting and free entry (donations welcome) was a bonus. Well worth a visit.

Doncaster Minster is part of the Church of England. We offer a welcome to all who might want to visit to view the building, take some time out of a busy day, to offer a quiet prayer and light a candle or worship with us.
