Business Name : Southwell Minster

Short Description :

Welcome to Southwell Minster come and explore our wonderful Cathedral and Minster. Said by many to be the best kept secret among the forty-two English cathedrals, it is a gem. The Cathedral and Parish Church of the Blessed Virgin Mary is popularly known, as it has been for centuries, as ‘Southwell Minster’. Although Christian worship has taken place on this site for over 1000 years, the present Romanesque building celebrated its commence­ment, 900 years ago, in 2008. Southwell Minster became the Cathedral Church of the Diocese in 1884.

Long Description :

As the Cathedral Church of Nottinghamshire it seeks to serve diverse communities from the farms of the Dukeries in the north, with mining and ex-mining towns, and in the south the colourful city of Nottingham with its industry, universities and teaching hospitals of international repute.  This stunning place still brings visitors to their knees in wonder and awe to glimpse the glory of God.  The thriving community here at the Minster invites you to come and see Southwell Minster for yourself and enjoy its charm and peace.  You will be most welcome.

Learning is central to the mission and outreach of Southwell Minster.  The stunning Cathedral sits on a site which tells the story of our land from Roman times and, along with the newly refurbished Archbishop’s Palace, makes a rich resource for learning.  We aspire to offer learning for all – schools, community groups, adults and the interested visitor.
