Only saw the cathedral from outside, but the architecture was very beautiful. About a 10 minute walk from Temple Mead station and another 10 minutes to the city centre.

A beautifully tranquil space. Bristol's second church, second only to the cathedral. Interesting, peaceful and welcoming. Worth a visit en route to the city centre from the station. Interesting history and informative displays about the development of Bristol as a city. Good stewards and good vibes.

On a casual walk along the Avon River in Bristol and the steeple of this church seemed to beckon. Very few visitors inside--but it's the most lovely church, beautifully maintained in easy walk of the old town center.

We visit this church as it was near our hotel and en route to the town centre. It was described by Elizabeth 1 as the "fairest parish church in all the land" and its easy to see what, its a very large church with some magnificent stained glass windows.

Wonderful historic church which still has the grand organ that was used for a recital when Queen Elizabeth I came to visit. It is located about 10-15 walk from the harbour
