It's perhaps 10 minutes walk from either Temple Meads station, or the city centre quays, but as an example of impressive Gothic church architecture on a 800 year old location, this is worth taking the time to visit. It's also a stop on the Hop On - Hop Off bus route. A simple visit leaflet (several languages available) is handed... More

I have visited this church many times, My Father was a choir boy and I have sung with the WI choir so perhaps I'm bias . It is amongst one of the greatest churches I have visited. You feel the history as you walk in, which goes back to Elizabeth 1st. It is worth a visit. A must if you... More

This is a probably most famous church in Bristol worth to visit but not essential if you don't have a lot of time

Well worth a visit to see this Gothic church and the stained glass windows. It also contains a whale bone brought back by John Cabot from his trip to Newfoundland. A replica of his boat can be viewed in the docks.

What an amazing building! Stumbled upon it by chance when waking into Bristol. The architecture is catherdal standard having been built mainly between the 13th and 14th centuries. Highlights are the elaborate tombs of the Bristol merchants plus the memorial and armour of Sir William Penn, father of William Penn - the founder of Pennsylvania in the US. I'd thoroughly... More

A surprisingly large, light and airy church with a long and interesting history and some very ancient parts. The ceiling is particularly lovely.

A delightful church set in large grounds which Queen Elizabeth 1 said was the most beautiful church she had seen. Thank God the Germans missed it when they bombed Bristol in WW 2. There are volunteer guides to explain what's there and they have services almost every day so you can experience great music and singing as well.

A wonderful church. If it was good enough for Queen Victoria it is good enough for me! Well worth a visit to wonder at the skills of the amazing stonemasons and craftmen who built this inspiring building.

St. Mary's Redcliffe is an interesting parish church, with a long history of community support, and an easy walk from the center of Bristol.
