I think this church is way more beautiful than the Bristol cathedral. The ceiling is beautiful, the stained glass is stunning. This church is truly unique and it deserves a visit. We didn't make it to the roof but if you can, don't miss out on this!

Impressive grand structure! Happened upon this church by accident and was pleasantly surprised. It is a magnificent building! Parts of the stone detail around the grand entrance remind me of Gaudi's Sagrada Familia in Barcelona.

We visited St Mary Redcliffe on Open Doors Day, and with the Tour of Britain passing nearby, it was quite busy inside. With this in mind I would like to go back on a quieter day, or maybe get in earlier on the next Open Doors, to have more time to explore (and maybe go up to the roof and... More

Prettiest parish church in all England, that's what Queen Elizabeth the first called it and it is stunning. Another must see gem in Bristol, why do people not take the time to travel that extra 15 mins from Bath to Bristol I don't know, it has far more to offer.

So said Queen Elizabeth 1 and who can disagree? The architecture, the stained glass, the interior, the history and now a model of "The Matthew" showing the connection to John Cabot as well as a whale bone! One of the windows is dedicated to Handel. Outside in the south churchyard is a memorial to a church cat and an embedded... More

I have always lived in Bristol but have never been inside the church. Visited as part of the Bristol Open Doors day. It was beautiful. We were lucky to have the organ playing & the choir singing as we started our visit. Stewards were on hand to explain key features if required & were very friendly & knowledgeable. The stained...

We were woken up by the fantastic bell ringing of this church (not too early), whilst staying at the Double tree Hilton hotel next door on Sunday morning and they really were fab. After breakfast, we decided to take a walk in the sunshine before going back to the room to get ready for our day out and ended up... More
