This is one not to miss on your tour around Bristol. To see such beauty and history in this Cathedral is wonderful and it is surrounded by a variety of other interesting Churches and buildings too!

Located in the heart of the city at the bottom of Park Street it's hard to miss this beautiful cathedral. Understated but beautiful. Always welcoming, especially with the sun streaming through the windows and a choice rehearsing. The cafe is good value and an afternoon spent in the garden is wonderful. Don't miss it.

Gorgeous acoustics - had the privilege to sing at our friends wedding there. Beautiful building from 1500 to the modern day - look around and see the history in the stone, wood and artefacts. Worth a vist, with the gardens for contemplation, history and exploration.

Definitely really interesting to wander round on the annual doors open day. Get there early to book trips up the tower. I didn't. Te room with the parquet floor is a surprisingly nice place to sit and relax for a few minutes.

It is amazing when you see it from the distance, the exterior was awesome and the garden aotside was lovely. When we got inside it wasn't less impressive, high columns, everything was amazing!

Please give this some time; it dates far back before the Reformation and is very interesting. Gift shop is excellent too; there are very friendly welcomers here!

Huge! On our visit we couldn't get inside as Graduation ceremony was taking place with students from Bristol University. Check before you go that there is not a service taking place..

This Cathedral is lovely. Went there for a graduation ceremony. What a fabulous setting. Easy to get to in the centre of Bristol. Well worth a visit if you are a culture vulture

If you're in Bristol you should call into the cathedral (it's free) and spend some time in peace and quiet. Admire the vaulted ceiling and the numerous stained glass windows.

We wandered into this cathedral on our walk around the old town area of Bristol. I'm glad we did. We see a lot of churches, and while this one isn't the most visually stunning cathedral I've seen, it was the most welcoming. We were greeted by a lovely older lady and the priest was sitting near the entrance also welcoming... More
