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.

This church is often mistaken for a cathedral not a parish church as it is so grand both in size and in its architectural design.The interior is as fabulous as its exterior and there is such a wonderful feeling of peace and calm. This church is steeped in history and spirituality and it is worth a visit even if you... More

Absolutely beautiful. If you are into cathedrals, definitely worth the trip! Great stop on a lovely walk around the harbour and a must see in Bristol.

A very famous church in Bristol. Can be over whelming . But lots of history here. In the church there is also a small tea/coffee shop. Plenty to see and pretty garden around the church

This is the real McCoy of 15th Century architecture in the "English Gothic" style. Many English Churches have been heavily restored by the Victorians: thankfully they seemed to have missed this perfect jewel. The principal benefactor of the church was William Canynges, who was a merchant trading with Iceland and Scandinavia and not engaged in the slave trade.

I like all churches to some extent and St Mary Redcliffe is certainly one of the prettier ones. Unfortunately its location is far from ideal but if you are passing well worth popping in. Not sure I would make a special trip though!

I work locally and went to the lunchtime carol service in December. It was the first time I'd been to St Mary Redcliffe and I was completely taken aback by how lovely it is. I now go each Thursday lunchtime to the organ recitals. I'm not at all religious but I do enjoy sitting for 40 minutes or so and... More
