Being a lover of churches etc at first glance this one seems a little bit small from the outside compared to many others but once you step inside the quality of the architecture and stone work blows you away. The views through the building are magnificent and the quality of the stone masons art shines through.

The cathedral is exquisite both inside and out. A great example of elegant Gothic architecture, perhaps more elegant than many more cumbersome "massive" cathedrals.

Describing the war through the lives of Bristolians who lost their lives in this month 100 years ago (it will change every month), it is a... More

We went to my daughter's university graduation. All very well organised [they made special arrangements for my son, who is tetraplegic]. As a building, a fairly typical C of E provincial 17th - 18th century cathedral.

Admission is free but there is a box for you to give your own donation. When we visited there was some art displays by the local university/school,... More

We decided to visit the Cathedral just to "kill time" whilst in Bristol and are so glad we did. It's a beautiful , historic building and well worth a visit.
