  • Taken a little by surprise at the size and scale of the Minster as the town itself isn't the biggest. Imposing structure in well kept gardens and beautifully looked after inside. Lots of points of int...  more »
  • Love wandering through the Minster at least once a week. If you time it with evening song - around 17.30 you have some great background music or you can attend the mass if you like.  more »
  • Park in the car park opposite, 2 hours free. The Minster is free to enter, but if you wish to take photos buy a £5 permit. There's lots to see on beside, and you may well end up also taking in a free ...  more »

  • Took a day trip from Nottingham on The Pathfinder to visit the Southwell Minster and was not disappointed. Happened on the annual service to celebrate and bless the animals in our lives - and enjoyed the service. The cathedral itself would have been worth the trip - but this service made it that much more special. Be sure to walk the grounds and wander into the town center while you are here.
  • Lovely cathedral built in Norman times with many stories to tell and volunteers to tell them. Sometimes charity events held and christmas indoor stalls. Bishops palace next door. Used to be open to the public but not sure now. Cathedral always worth a visit and the shop and cafe in the grounds. Southwell is a small market town. Shops, post office and cafes., hotels. Good bus route. Car park small with toilet.
  • Southwell Minster is a lovely cathedral which deserves to be better known. If you are in the Nottingham area it's well worth a trip. Southwell itself is a small town with lots of 'proper' shops and some good café's and an excellent old inn where apparently Charles I was held before his execution.
  • One of the nicest Cathedrals in England. So welcoming and reverent. Much history in this 800 year old building
  • Amazing place with volunteers and staff that are incredibly knowledge. Really interesting place. Well worth visiting.
