My family and I turned up at the cathedral today after travelling over an hour only to be told we could not go in! I would love to be able to say how lovely it was, but I can't! We checked the website before we left and there was no message saying it was closed! We also believed that a... More

We were here for our son's graduation today. What a beautiful building with some lovely stained glass windows, a nice little café , toilets and best of all - unlike some other cathedrals - its free to enter.

This place is well worth visiting if you are in the area, very old and quaint, well worth looking round, there is also a cafe inside for a snack or lunch after you have finished looking round and the paninis are great!

We were there whilst there was a graduation ceremony going on, but were allowed in for a quick peek during lunch break. The vaulted ceiling and stone work is stunning. There are some beautiful windows and the choir looks amazing, though we only saw it though gates as it was closed off. Must go back again to see it in... More

Only spent a short time in the Cathedral as I think they were tuning the organ and it was very loud. The building inside and out is beautiful. Amazing architecture. Also, free to go in, unlike most other cathedrals in this country. Would have liked longer to wander round to take in it's great beauty.

I'll be honest with you, whenever I see pictures of Bristol, it is nearly always St Mary Redcliffe and I always assumed that was the parish church cum cathedral. I never knew Bristol had a gothic cathedral. And what a cathedral it turned out to be. Beautiful architecture, some unique points and very old stained glass in the cloisters. Well... More

Bristol Cathedral is large and imposing but also ha s a simple style. We visited on a sunny afternoon and the view through the back door's framed glass was very calming. Compared to many churches the cathedral Is uncluttered. Make sure you walk out and admire the city hall next door when you visit
