We took our sister who was over from Europe to see the glorious cathedral and were surprised that it was packed with people attending the Flog It TV programme! We still managed to see much of the glories of the cathedral including the cloisters and the beautiful garden where snowdrops and crocus shoots were peeking through. I have seen productions... More

Whilst travelling through the UK, we stayed over Night in Bristol. As we were staying nearby, we paid a visit to the Bristol Cathedral and attended evensong. It was a truly special experience. A beautiful cathedral with many points of interest for tourists to take in.

What can I say, one of the best features of Bristol. Glorious, Angelic and of course Free. Paupers rejoice! A beautiful place to visit and always a pleasure to enter. A little secret not many people know - check out the garden. Enter through the cafe, (you can take your coffee outside) and enter Narnia, well almost, a peaceful and... More

Lovely to go and look around and not be charged an entrance fee! The smell of incense was lingering post Christmas celebrations and it was warm an inviting both literally and spiritually. Well worth a visit.

We visited the Cathedral after shopping at the Bristol Christmas Market. An informative guide to the cathedral was provided by a friendly member of staff. We we treated to a musical performance which highlighted the amazing sounds to be heard in the Catherdal. The market was in the main shopping area, so good for all aspects of christmas shopping.

Being the week before Christmas the Cathedral was very busy with Carol Services for Charity but we were very fortunate to be able to attend the special Carol Service for the Mercy Ships which was wonderful and afterwards were able to have a walk around the Cathedral to view properly. The Cathedral is spectacular and well worth a visit.

I love to visit churches and cathedrals, and I always try to anytime I'm on some break, or short business trip. This really was exquisite.
