Heritage Open Days 2014: Halifax Minister: Hidden Gems Trail

  • 11 — 14 September 2014

See the medieval Minster with its 900 year old wall, the 1766 Snetzler Organ, Anne Lister's headstone and burial position, the splendid Commonwealth glass in its original position and Old Tristram, amongst other things to discover. Spend time looking round and then have a cup of tea and admire the beauty. 'Hidden Gems of Halifax' is a trail that takes you from the Minster into the Town to look at rooms and buildings which would not normally be open to the public. The tour takes about one hour and a half to complete and is led by a guide. After refreshments in the Minster, take a climb up the bell tower (unsuitable for those with heart and/or breathing difficulties) and see the panorama of Halifax. 'Hidden Gems of Halifax' tours available.
