A beautiful, imposing building and grounds that made a stunning setting for our daughter's graduation ceremony.

Cathedrals are always a welcome oasis in the maelstrom of hectic living. It's lovely to light a candle and pray for someone, or for peace in the world. A chance for a few calm moments. Not to be missed.

Lovely Cathedral, not far from the city centre, containing beautiful carvings, interesting memorials going back many hundreds of years, and a beautiful fan vaulted ceiling. The organ was being played during our visit which only added to the atmosphere of the place. Unlike many other cathedrals, admission is free, but a donations is always welcome.

We heard the choir sing and the organ was playing. The building is beautiful but this added to its charm. Definitely worth a visit.

When we were in Bristol, the Cathedral had a display of embroidery and calligraphy, that a lady was inspired to do, while at a service there. It was beautiful and detailed. It was also interesting to go around the cathedral and see people from all over the world had memorial plates around the walls.

Located just off the City Centre this is an easy walk or taxi ride from other attractions. All areas seemed easy access for wheelchairs etc. It has a little gift shop (not overpriced) and lovely little cafe which I often use on visits. With its various little places of quiet and chapels it is also a place of sanctuary and... More

Nice to find a cathedral that is open to the public free of charge. Light and airy, friendly welcome and we were fortunate to hear a choir practising.

I didn't even know that Bristol had a cathedral before I arrived in the city. I've visited many and thought I'd seen all of the notable ones, but this one was very special. Architecturally it's a mix of medieval and Victorian gothic, and each part works- looking at the building from the outside, particularly, you can see the transition, but... More
