The Minster Church of St Cuthburga
Tel: +44 01202 884753
There has been a church in Wimborne since 705 AD when Queen Cuthburga founded her nunnery here. Each generation has left its mark and the Minster today has something to offer visitors of all ages. Apart from the fine Norman architecture, there is the famous astronomical clock with the quarterjack, a life-size soldier, on the side of the west tower who strikes the quarter hours on his bell.
The fascinating chained library has hardly changed since it was founded in 1686, the Library is open Monday to Friday 10.30am to 12.30pm and 2.00-4.00pm and Saturdays 10.30am to 12.30pm (Easter to end of October). There is a gift shop within the Minster.
