We wondered why such a small church should be graced with the term Minster (strictly speaking, a place of teaching) and were given a potted history by a very helpful member of the congregation who spoke both to us and to another group. It all...More

The chuch is well worth a visit being right in the heart of Regency Cheltenham. It has interesting features including stained glass windows. There are some nice cafes near by too.

Having seen images of Cheltenham's Minster in photographs, I knew to expect a towering Church, and it didn't disappoint. I wasn't able to catch much more than a glimpse of the inside as they were closing due to the run but it does look incredible.

The church is the oldest building in the town. It's architecture is particularly varied. It is an unexpected survival in the urban scene. The surroundings require a little TLC.

Beautiful old building, stunning windows and arcetecture. Still an active place of worship with a section set aside to pray for the town.

This is a lovely old building with interesting architecture. Unfortunately it was closed up when we went there, and there was no indication of when we could see the inside.

I always find this minster very calming. I'm not religious, but like viewing oldie places. The architecture wow! It's over 850 years old. Stunning! On the grounds there's really grand grave stones.
