We enjoyed a visit to the cathedral while the choir were rehearsing before Saturday afternoon evensong. It's worth a view if you're passing!

I have always loved Bristol Cathedral and it holds many happy memories for me, but this time I felt less overwhelmed, impressed, but found it much more friendly in feeling and a lovely quiet place to walk round.

A lovely place to visit and wander round, a small guide was handed to us by one of the volunteers at the door which provide a layout and some information. As we walked around we listened to a choral rehearsal which was going on. There is plenty to see with at one end a beautiful stained glass window and nearby... More

This cathedral is a must see in Bristol. We went during Sunday morning service, you may quietly enter and sit in the back or wait until the services are completed.

I have been to many cathedrals and was unimpressed with this one. Nobody about to answer questions. Cafe was functional.

This Cathedral is in the heart of the city. It is lovely and peaceful to walk around it and also to sit and pray. The ceiling is impressive

Another grand, awesome, stunning cathedral. Take your time, explore the ceilings, the structure, the windows. You have to be impressed. Where else can you take those few moments to truly contemplate? This is a different visit and a time to take it slowly.

Interesting Cathedral although not my favourite Cathedral it is non the less as impressive in its build as others.An easy way to spend an hour or so in any weather and marvel at its construction.

I went on Sunday afternoon. A pitty, as some of the parts where booked nad you were not allowed. Also the restaurant. Due to low season also the cathedral shop is closed. It's nice to visit, also the little court garden with gravestones. But I did not get the wow effect as in many other cathedrals. ILike the free entrance... More
