Owner description: The Minster Church of Saint George, Doncaster stands at the heart of the town of Doncaster, where a church has stood for over 8 centuries. The present church was built to the designs of George Gilbert Scott between 1854-1858, after the mediaeval church was destroyed by fire in 1853. It was described by Sir John Betjeman as "Victorian Gothic at its very best" Situated on the site of the Roman fort of Danum, a section of the Roman wall can be viewed in the grounds of the Minster.

The internals of the Minster are exceptional and can leave you breathless! However the site of the minister in it's evening lights is something else. Definitely the most beautiful minister in South Yorkshire.

This is quite a new minster, nice but cannot be compared to a Cathedral. It's Worth a visit if you are in Doncaster on a daytrip.
It worked well to cross the road from the shopping streets and reach the minster from there.

Thank you for your lovely comments about the Minster. We enjoy meeting people who come to look round, or just want a quiet space to gather their thoughts or offer a quiet prayer and we certainly welcome anyone to join us for worship on Sundays or during the week.

The Minster is a really lovely church, very peaceful even though it was being decorated with greenery for Advent. Well worth a visit to see all the beautiful stained glass windows.
