Holiday Travel Guide
Doncaster Minster which includes a park, heritage architecture and a church or cathedral

The organ, stained-glass windows and ecclesiastical carvings embellish the interior of this exceptional church, with Gothic tower and rose windows.

With its glorious stained-glass windows and opulent interior, Doncaster Minster is the crowning jewel of South Yorkshire. Built in the 19th century on the site of a former medieval church, this working church hosts concerts, lectures and other events. Find refuge from the bustle of city life in this serene and sumptuous church.

Enter through the West Door or South Porch and read the available brochures to understand the context and history of the church. Chat with the friendly staff, who may offer to guide you around the structure. You can also arrange guided tours and group visits by calling in advance.

View the impressive organ that was constructed in 1862 by famous builder Edmund Schulze. Today, monthly recitals continue to put the organ to good use. Marvel at the colorful stained-glass windows and paintings lining the walls. Meditate while sitting on a pew and notice the Baroque front bench reserved for important religious and political visitors.

A well-kept and gated grassy lawn borders the front of the church. Capture photos of the intricate rose windows adorning the Gothic structure, which was designed and built in the 1850s by architect George Gilbert Scott. Rising above the rest of the church body is the tower, which is 169 feet (52 meters) tall and contains eight bells.

Consider the intriguing history of the church. It was built on the location of a medieval predecessor that was destroyed by a fire in 1853. Previous to that, the Roman fort of Danum stood here.

The church opens its doors to visitors Monday through Saturday from late morning to late afternoon. Listen to choir services on Sundays. Worshippers can attend prayer services any day.

Doncaster Minster is in the northern part of Doncaster Town Centre, approaching the River Don. Walk northeast from the Doncaster train station for 10 minutes to reach the church. While in the area, make sure to see Doncaster Mansion House, Doncaster Museum and Art Gallery and Doncaster’s Cast theater.
