Wonderful old church that oozes history and magnificent architecture. It's walking distance from the hotel and you could continue your walk to the shops if you desire.

The atmosphere, the architecture, the design, the history. I was also confirmed there, got married there and my first son was christened there, so I am somewhat biassed!

Beautiful. Bit a pain to get to unless happy paying the council's thieving car park charges. Look for a box with a false key opening. Bet your unable to locate the true opening mechanism, have been told it's empty.

We were staying at the hotel next to this church and admired the outside as we walked past. We just had to go inside. What an amazing place. Almost like a cathedral with beautiful stained glass windows and all so well preserved. It has a very helpful guide card that is worth following around the church. There are a couple... More

The church was such a wonderful sight as you turned the corner to see it, although you could see its spire from all over Bristol and helped us get back to our base on several occasions! The interior was superb, such a lot of history in a large building and very well kept.

In June I visited St Mary Redcliffe, met some very helpful volunteers who shared their knowledge of the church with me. A beautiful church, most hospitable people - a total pleasure.

Yes I am totally biased as a Bristolian but this really is one of the most beautiful churches you will visit. It is quiet and a haven of peace from the bedlam of life outside and the main roads that surround it. I took a Kenyan visitor who was fascinated and for those interested there are wonderful biblical stories, not... More

You see the spire long before you reach the church. In fact standing outside you cannot get everything on to one photo it is so massive. Built by the Bristol merchants in competition with the Cathedral it is a wonderful building of great architectural, historical and religious significance. Entry is free and you can just wander around gazing at what... More

....said Elizabeth 1 of St Mary, Redcliffe. It is not a cathedral - Bristol has two of those, each with their own charms but there is no doubt that Redcliffe's parish church is rather spectacular. It is also very welcoming with a really good cafe in the undercroft (run by recovering addicts and serving a good range of reasonably priced... More
