Visited the cathedral as part of my son's graduation. Don't know a great deal about Bristol but not what I expected, located down by the quays & stands alone between them & the mayor's offices. Definitely worth a visit when you're next in Bristol.

What a pity it was so difficult to find the tea room. Nearly gave up and the selection of food was definitely limited. The cathedral is amazing. What a legacy for the city and well done for its upkeep.

We decided to have some quiet time away from the hustle bustle and commercialism of then Harbour Festival. Bristol Cathedral gave us that space and tranquility to step out of the world for a little time. Wonderful.

What a warm and beautiful Cathedral and so welcoming. Sound quality is excellent during services and one does not feel as though one is in a large, cold and uninviting place.

Roof tours of Bristol Cathedral are infrequent, but we were lucky enough to join one recently which was led by the Dean himself. The most striking part was the contrast between the medieval roof work and the much more engineering-heavy roof space above the Victorian nave. Even Brunel got involved at one point, as there was concern about the integrity... More
