This is a beautiful cathedral. It has really interesting history, dating from Knights templar to modern days. Certainly a must to visit, while in Bristol.....

We always go and visit either church or cathedral wherever we stay. There is so much to see and learn about local history. Very enjoyable.

We took our ageing in laws to this as part of a city visit and found it charming. It was only a stones throw from our hotel on the harbourside although we had to climb some quite steep steps to get to it. Inside the architecture is breathtaking and there is lots of no formation about to explain everything. The... More

This wonderful city has a big heartbeat. It's vibrant, cosmopolitan, big and busy and it also has a wonderful cathedral. Great architecture and an incredibly calm atmosphere inside although there are a fair share of tourists milling around. A must see experience.

Bristol Cathedral is beautiful inside. The visit brought back memories of my graduating in the cathedral ten years before. The cathedral was very quite at the time with very few visitors. The stained glass was very pretty and definitely worth a good look. A small walk from the town centre or a short bus ride from Temple Meads station

Bristol Cathedral is a beautiful building that has evolved from the C12th to Victorian times, although this was certainly not always at an even pace. Although this "organic growth" appears both from inside, and especially when viewed from College Green, outside, to be a seamless continuous process. The history of this impressive building shows this was anything but a smooth... More

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.
