We have been to Southwell Minster on several occasions over the years. The place has a great feeling of calm and quiet. Much enjoyed the area where all the Bishops would sit at meetings. A lovely monument to those builders who built wonderful buildings which are still in use centuries later.

Very nice place to visit, some lovely shops on the high street. Very quaint town with a minster (yes it's classed as a town even though it has a minster ). The smallest place to have a minster.

Absolutely stunning massive Norman architecture - a glorious cathedral set in the middle of this lovely small town. What an amazing space inside - just puts you in awe of the medieval masons who built this huge structure. And the setting of the well-maintained churchyard with the Bishop's Palace and the education garden is wonderful. The bells sounded great too. They ring on Sundays of course and Tuesday is practice night. We've been before and will go again.

Our friends living locally suggested that we had a tour of the Minster. A really great experience. Equal to many Cathedrals. Helpful volunteers on hand to give additional guidance and information. £5 voluntary donations - which we were very happy to pay.
