Amazing architecture in a nice area. Check out some of the dates of people taking their eternal rest there - fascinating.

Beautiful and historic. There's been a church there for over a thousand years. The Chapter House and Abbey Gatehouse remain clear to see and there are some more remains located within the Bristol Cathedral School. It's a major example of a 'hall' church and one of the finest to be found anywhere in the world. Very calm and very interesting.... More

This an amazing structure. Since it is also home to two choir schools I chose to visit during a Monday evensong. It was delightful to hear the choir and organ. A church us more than just a building so I always make a point to also take pleasure in the worship with the local congregation.

Compare this to St Mary Redcliffe Church and the Roman Catholic Cathedral. All interesting in different ways but this is not the best in my opinion.

Absolutely love this cathedral. It holds happy memories for me because I had my graduation here- but the building itself is very impressive, and there is a lovely green area outside it which makes for lovely picnics and photographs. There is also a small courtyard which is a real suntrap. It is an elegant and architecturally stunning building and I... More

It lacks the sort of reverence one expects, but is popular enough. It is very close to the main city library and a college I an an alumni of, right near the council offices.

Beautiful atmosphere. Stained glass windows stunning. Volunteers gladly let us in to look round, even though a funeral was 30 mins pending. We did a quick tour round as I wanted to ensure we left in plenty of time to respect funeral. Cafe available, although we did not visit this time. Likewise, the gardens.

This epic cathedral has the most beautiful haunting Christmas corals and a beautiful garden. It is the only cathedral I have ever been to (I've been to a LOT) that you feel comfortable sitting down and just being there.
