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 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. 

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

Open daily Summer 8am to 7pm. Winter 8am to dusk.

Southwell Minster will be one of the main venues for the inaugral Southwell Music Festival which is taking place between Friday 22 and Bank Holiday Monday 25 August 2014.
