Overview

Welcome to the Leeds Minster - a place of worship and service for the fast-moving modern city of Leeds. Leeds Minster is one of England's best-loved Parish Churches and at our heart is a sacred choral tradition. Our origins date back to the greatest of the Victorian Vicars of Leeds, Dr Hook. It was during his 22-year incumbency that today's Minster Church of St Peter at Leeds was built - an astonishing building consecrated with great ceremony on 2 September 1841 in the presence of a vast congregation including the celebrated Florence Nightingale. In 2012 we were granted Minster status. Today you can visit the Minster for worship - whether for a few minutes of calm contemplation at a mid-week Choral Evensong or for the richness of a Sunday Choral Eucharist. We invite all to walk around and soak up the atmosphere of a building rich in history and heritage, light a votive candle, listen to the famous organ and round it all off with an enjoyable light lunch in our Refectory. If you do have not the time for an extended personal visit, but happen to pass the Minster on foot, by train, by bus, or in your car, do listen out for the Bells and do pray for us as we pray for you.

I am not religious, but, can appreciate good architecture and this was one of the most stunning minsters that I have been in-well worth a look for the stained glass windows and ornate work inside.

Have to admit I like visiting churches and this is a really good one. Beautiful inside and as you would expect filled with history. Only 10 mins walk from the station so well worth taking a detour.

Centrally placed. If you love visiting churches you'll love St Peter's. Especially interesting are the ornate Victorian galleries and the Tudor Table Tomb removed from the earlier church.
