This is a beautiful church to visit and if you get a chance to eat in the ARC Café below the church it is good food for a good cause.

This is the most impressive church in Bristol. I think it is far more interesting than the (Anglican) cathedral although that is worth seeing too

This is a very beautiful and welcoming church. Even if you are not a Christian, they are welcoming for everyone to come in and learn what role this church in history. It even has ties to the discovery of the USA!

If you happen to walk by, please go inside. I promise it'll be as beautiful as the outside! If you can get a tour, then please do, it will help you get to the tiny details you would otherwise miss if you do it all by yourself.
