HERITAGE HIGHLIGHTS: medieval wall paintings
The interior features wall paintings from the medieval and Tudor periods. In the front garden stands a 15th-century gateway, moved here from another location. The friary was suppressed by Henry VIII in 1539 and the building saw many uses over the following centuries. It is now a YHA Youth Hostel and occasionally an exhibition venue.
It is well worth taking the short stroll from the Minster to have a look at the Friary. Even when there is no public access you can still see the garden and the 15th-century gateway, and it is fascinating to see how the older medieval part of the building has been added to and evolved over the centuries.
