A most beautiful building highlighted by that most special time in the Christian Calender - we will return again as we would like to see it in daylight. Beautiful, peaceful and welcoming by night.

We were privileged to attend a Nine Lessons and Carols service on December 23rd. A beautiful service in a stunningly-beautiful historic cathedral.

Fantastic building in a beautiful setting. We popped in as we had 30 minutes to spare before the shops opened. So glad we did. Lovely stained glass. Small shop open from 10am.

What a beautiful cathedral. Some gorgeous stained glass windows, casting wonderful colourful shadows in amongst the arches. Lovely cloisters area. A beautiful piece of architecture and a very peaceful place to visit.

Absolutely amazing cathedral! Nicely located in the centre, with walking area surrounding, the cathedral must be on your list to visit if you come to Bristol.

An oasis of calm in the middle of a busy city. Peace and quiet, a friendly welcome but no demands for money in the form of a cash desk (which I abhor). Quiet peaceful side chapels for prayer and candles to light, a very welcome coffee shop and toilets. Gardens beautiful even on a cold day. No visit to Bristol... More

Situated at St Mary Redcliffe the cathedral is sandwiched between the Temple Meads, City Centre and Bedminster areas of the city. It is very imposing, has stunning architecture, and is surrounded, at the rear , by quaint cobbled streets.

At 3.30pm on Sunday's there is a choral service which many (it would appear) do not know about: A fantastic way to unwind and recharge.

What a fantastic way to spend a morning. Inside a Cathedral watching proudly as your child receives his BSc. Stained glass windows, words to share, laughter and tears. Wonderful.
