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.
