Its absolutely amazing. A gem of a gothic masterpiece. The ceilings are just wonderful. Everything is very well kept and its a pleasure. There is also a cafe under the church but we didnt try it out.

Truly inspiring to walk round, I enjoyed the architecture as well as the helpful explanatory notices. The peace and the history were almost tangible. You find something else to wonder at with each visit.

This is a beautiful church in the Redcliffe area of Bristol. It is 'Cathedral - size' and has some wonderful stained glass. Apparently Handel played the organ here occasionally.

The church is wonderful to look at and is an oasis of calm in the middle of a big city. The water pendulum will fascinate you for hours.

This is a master piece of Gothic architecture and one of the most famous parish churches in the UK. There are beautiful stained glasses, a very unusual boat altar, armour of Sir William Penn, gothic arches and enormous pillars and grand vaulted ceiling.

We need to do more to preserve more places like this as they will be a beacon for our future. So we should all visit historical places as much as possible and support the volunteers.
