About

FREE admission, donations welcome.

Southwell Minster, the Cathedral of Nottinghamshire, is rich historical and architectural interest. It provides fine examples of the main styles of architecture, particularly Norman and early English. The latter is very evident in the 13th century Chapter House, one of the Minsters most glorious features with some of the finest examples of naturalistic carvings in the country - the Leaves of Southwell.

The Minster has a strong musical tradition with Evensong sung during term time by the Cathedral Choir and orchestral with choral concerts held throughout the year. Other events such as the Bramley Festival of Food and Drink and a Craft Fair as well as theatrical productions and art exhibitions are held in the beautiful Nave. 

The Visitors Centre incorporates the Cathedral Shop, Refectory and audio visual centre.A digitally-recorded audio guide is available. 

Open daily 8am to 7pm.

Southwell Minster will be one of the main venues for the Southwell Music Festival which is taking place on the August bank holiday weekend.
