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.

Looking at St Georges Minster from the outside it looks impressive but inside gives another story. It does have some good stained glass and stone carvings and the pulpit and font are made of stone rather than the usual wood. But I felt it needed...More

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.

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.

Doncaster Minster is part of the Church of England. We offer a welcome to all who might want to visit to view the building, take some time out of a busy day, to offer a quiet prayer and light a candle or worship with us.
