Bristol Cathedral is never going to compete with York, or Lincoln, but it's a nice building with some interesting architecture and a garden, cloisters and Chapter House which add to the things to see. Admission is free with donations encouraged which is very reasonable.

The stained glass windows are beautiful. Interesting with 2 altars and 2 chapels which are all used on different occasions.
