Sheltering from a rainy morning we entered this Cathedral and it was wonderful. Myself and 3 friends walked around and sat in contemplation for a few minutes enjoying some of the stained glass windows. Pity the weather was so bad as we didn't get to enjoy the park outside.

Having been to the cathedral for Rose day for years when at Clifton high it was lovely to go back and have a proper look at the cathedral. It is a beautiful building and the windows are stunning, not something you necessarily notice as a child! It is the most calming place to sit. The gardens are beautiful but as... More

Awesome interiors. Very nice athmosphere. Don't miss the garden, which is a bit hidden (go to the cloister and it's the middle door on the left). There is also a cafe and you can have your drinks outside in the garden. Sometimes they also do free tours in the cathedral - check their web site for times. No fee.

The sheer size is mind blowing. The fan vaulting and windows are wonderful. It has a lovely atmosphere. You can just sit and take it all in or wander into the garden. Very peaceful

This is a very nice cathedral in a very special architectural building. Other than this cathedral is well within the Bristol cathedral choir school, this place interestingly is open for hiring as an event. I understand University of West England is using this historical building to host their graduation ceremony. Great building for a great occasion.

This typically Gothic cathedral was founded in 1140 and became the seat of the Bishop of Bristol in 1542. As a Grade 1 listed building, it is, for me, one of the most beautiful Church of England! Impressive!

The Bristol Cathedral is one of the most iconic gothic cathedrals in Britain and it can be one of the focal points for every trip to Bristol. Its beautiful and spacious interior and the large rose window among with the garden and coffee shop makes a good spot not only for those who loves history and architecture, but also for... More

Beautiful cathedral, very friendly staff. Impressive building. Kids could have done a trail if they had been interested.
