Pretty, Interesting Church

It is just a very pretty Church, with gargoyle type figures ......and I think I might have even spotted a Green Man

The church itself is very impressive but if you are able to hear the bells ringing you are in for a treat. There are 14 bells in all, including two which are there to provide a harmonious peal of 8 or 10 when there are too few ringers to sound all of the 12 main bells.

It s not surprising that Queen Elizabeth I was so complimentary about this church. It is breathtakingly beautiful and so light for a building of its great age. It is well worth buying a guide book.

Rich in history from the little devil goblin hidden among the hundreds of roset's on the ceilings to the tram line lodged in the graveyard which just missed the church in the second world war. Peaceful and quiet inside a great place to stop on the way to town or on the way back.

I felt that this church probably doesn't get the publicity it deserves. Visited on Easter Monday and really enjoyed this beautiful church. Please take some time to enjoy this, if you are in the area.

This Church is full of beautiful stained glass and carved ceilings. There are several lovely side chapels with fascinating tombs. We were fortunate enough to attend evensong here. The music was outstanding with an anthem written by the choir master for Palm Sunday. We were made to feel very welome by the lady head steward.

I love this place, I have been here many times in my life and have many family connections as grandparents and parents got married here. You cant help but look att he wonderful church and wonder how it was built. It is still in great condition and kept so well. The volunteers who work there are incredibly friendly and knowledgable.

St. Mary Redcliffe was the first stop on my tour around Europe and it was a great stop. A friend had recommend I visit when she had lived near it for a few years. I was not disapointed. It is a beautiful and well maintained church, breaktaking views and the staff is very friendly.

A beautiful church, so atmospheric. A jewel in the crown of Bristol. It also has a cafe which is friendly and welcoming.

This place is quiet nice but not on a very good spot (near a very big roundabout). it is a nice walk away from the town centre and there are a few benches in the rear garden. The church itself is nice inside.
