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.

Met at the door by a very knowledgeable lady who gave us a very helpful history. The stained glass windows are really colourful and lovely. The history was very interesting and free entry (donations welcome) was a bonus. Well worth a visit.

I had my daughter christened at the minster church at the end of May. The church is stunning, so beautiful inside. The stained glass windows are amazing. The service was beautiful and I'm really please I chose this church.

Visited on our way to york, unfortunately the city of Doncaster doesn´t match other cities all over England, it's dirty not well preserved and you don´t fell safe at all, this cathedral matches the city, good to visit but has little to offer.More

This church is historic, beautiful, awe-inspiring and everyone should take the opportunity to see it, inside and outside. My highlight was some years ago, attending Christmas Eve midnight service on a bitterly cold night when the choir's singing was coming out as white breath. Truly...More

Easily the most attractive structure in Doncaster though, admittedly, the competition isn't tough. Thankfully, the Minster is set apart from the hurly burly of the town's pedestrianised shopping areas. It's a small oasis of calm alongside a dual carriageway. Plenty to admire, inside and out....More
