Such a beautiful cathedral in the middle of the city. The cathedral has such beautiful architecture, lots of history. And, you can feel the quietness as you enter the premises of the cathedral from the hustle and bustle of the city. They have a beautiful garden where you can relax and enjoy the scenery on a sunny day.

The Cathedral is free to visit and very close to the harbor, so it can't be missed. The building is amazing, very beautiful and historic. The park in front of the Cathedral is also great for having lunch and spend a nice afternoon.

The cathedral sits on College Green opposite Bristol City Hall - a stones throw from the Watershed less than 3 minutes walk away, and a Banksy 1 minutes walk away. The cathedral quarter is very pleasant with fountains, lovely old stone arches and buildings, cobbled streets - quintessentially English. I wouldn't say that the interior of the cathedral is as...

We walked around the Cathedral and were astounded at its beauty. It is well worth a visit to enjoy the Architecture and Stained glass windows. We were even invited to a free recital, but unfortunately we didn't have time.

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
