It was Queen Elizabeth I who described this church as.'the fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England'. It is lovely with a high spire and beautiful vaulted ceiling decorations. Well worth a visit and a good photographic opportunity.

The church is overwhelming and full of history: Queen Elizabeth I, at her time, considered it the most beautiful church in England!

The church is free for visitors and is well worth a visit. Although it is a place of worship it offers visitors a glimpse into Bristol's past. There are information boards around the church giving you information about people that contributed to the building of the church and Bristol as a city.

Really cool church, It's free to go in and have a look round. Lots of Bristolians overlook this as a place to visit, but its worth checking out if you're into impressive architecture or old buildings.

We went with family and the Children went to a school that was connected with this church and they had only been there for services during school times but they thoroughly enjoyed looking at the Church from another perspective and being able to wander throughout. Many interesting things within including a very interesting and unique clock.

I ride past this church almost everyday and have been inside only once. It's a masterpiece of architecture! Still an active church that serves the community and closely attached school. A visit is recommended

Amazing church, also experienced the priest giving a excelent speach and I'm not religious. The lady at the information was so frendly and gave us a guide. I reccommend it because of great architecture, amazing interior and history of the church.
