a oasis of peace and quiet near the busy city centre. Staff were lovely (grandchild had knocked a large cross over accidentally and were genuinely concerned that he had not hurt himself Happy to give a small donation, and buy a souvenir badge

The longer we stayed, the more we found. Older and richer in heritage than we had first supposed. Lovely peaceful atmosphere. The Berkeley Chapel was a peaceful corner for private prayer and meditation, our main reason for visiting, We stayed longer than we'd expected in this deeply tranquil space.

Having visited other cathedrals in Europe and the UK, I found it to be... slightly gloomy, especially the exterior. I found the ceiling fascinating, though I'm no architect to tell you what it's called.

We attended a concert by the University of the West of England orchestra in Bristol Cathedral on 5 April, excellent programme of Handel, Beethoven and Elgar, beautifully performed by a good orchestra in a wonderful setting. Special thanks to Ian Holmes and Adrian Hull for their brilliant direction and conducting.

Gorgeous cathedral, an unexpected treat - one could sit and stare at the ceilings and stained glass all day.

An amazing building, lovely to go in and have a walk around and a nice little cafe to have a tea and scone. Pit there aren't more people to guide you but looking around by yourself is nice as well.

We visited the cathedral early in the morning and as we were exploring we heard beautiful voices singing choir music. Apparently, next to the Cathedral there is a Choir School with great attendance. The overall experience was awesome.

The Bristol Bach choir were rehearsing for an evening performance of Rachmaninov's Vespers. It was truly beautiful, we were very lucky. The cathedral is lovely

No sense of the historic building and the food is quite drab - narrow range of sandwiches and jackets...
