We were attracted to this church because its impressive tower can be clearly seen from the nearby motorway. It is a wonderful building, partially ruinous, but what remains is absolutely full of interest. This church was real joy to visit.

The Minster, both ruins and actual church, are charming to visit. It is the centre of a really pleasant and interesting old town centre.

You will hear the bells chime all around Howden, but the Minster is beautiful inside and out and looks really great in the sun. There is a nice park to picnic in just behind the Minster and appreciate the architecture from a distance. If you...More

The ruins are attached to the new Minster, the ruins are of the chancel and chapter house, you can only view them, you can't go in.

Visited Howden on a weekend away and came across this beautiful old Minster. The ruins are still amazing and full of character. The stained glass windows inside the church are beautiful and the graveyard surrounding it is very peaceful.

You just have to love it, the ruins, the minster and do not forget to find the Parish coffin inside, a piece of history that is worth visiting.
