Met a lovely Chaplain at the door. This is a lovely Cathedral with the organist practicing on my arrival. It is obviously a very active building and lovely to see. Great buts by school kids nice to see in a large cathedral. Would were commend a visit.

Family Carol Service on 21st December was open to all with a stunning sounding choir and even a real donkey! The kids and adults loved every minute and it made us feel extra Christmassey in the run up to the day itself.

This is a beautiful building inside and out with a wonderful atmosphere. It is well worth spending an hour or two looking around the inside in general and the cloisters and the chapels. The architecture is amazing.

We visited the cathedral whilst in Bristol for a one day stay. When we entered we were greeted with the most wonderful singing and organ playing. A choir was rehearsing! The visit to this very interesting building was made even more pleasant by the 'background music'

A very interesting visit. Beautiful building with so much to be talked about.. A 'must' visit . The parking is a downfall . But with several tourist places to visit close by worth a walk from a carpark.

This was as are all Cathedrals in Europe and around the world a haven of tranquility in the midst of a bustling town. It is just wonderful to absorb some of the history of the area from all of the plaques within and also marvel at the construction of the building which never ceases to impress as to how it... More

A most beautiful building highlighted by that most special time in the Christian Calender - we will return again as we would like to see it in daylight. Beautiful, peaceful and welcoming by night.

Fantastic building in a beautiful setting. We popped in as we had 30 minutes to spare before the shops opened. So glad we did. Lovely stained glass. Small shop open from 10am.
