An impressive collection of stained glass windows, complementing the high vaulted ceilings. We sat in the Lady Chapel meditating quietly and absorbed the tranquillity.

The church has got lots of history, class and beauty. A very warm welcome from the lady on the welcome and a great place to pray. Free entry and a magnificent building.

Ancient tall and grand. The beautiful stained glass windows are wonderful colours. The structure of the building demands attention. Vivid glances into the past evoke scenes of Queen Elizabeth 1st saying that this Church was the Grandest Church in all the land.

If you're interested in the history of Bristol or architecture, this is well worth a visit. There is plenty of unobtrusive information for those who want to know more, and plenty of peace and space for those who just want to admire

Still functions as a Catholic church. Sat in on a mass, although I do not consider myself a Catholic, but enjoyed the music and the beautiful windows.

The outside is very attractive and the surrounding roads fairly quiet while we were there on a Saturday morning. The interior is fantastic and very well maintained. Fantastic arches
