As with all Cathedrals, Bristol’s large, city centre Minster is beautiful and effortlessly impressive. Externally it is huge, and imposing, but fits in well with it’s surroundings, overlooking a grassed square and other architecturally interesting buildings.
Inside there’s the usual mix of stained glass, pillars, altars and side chapels, and it feels typically sombre. There was something missing though, we couldn’t quite put our fingers on it, but it was missing something of a “wow” factor, that you get in other similarly enormous buildings. We’ve visited lots of Cathedrals and smaller religious buildings across Europe, and we may have been spoiled by Barcelona’s Sagrada and Mallorca’s La Seu. They’re mind blowing buildings, and Bristol’s effort seemed a little sedate in comparison. That’s not to say it’s not worth an hour of your time if you’re in the area, and it’s free, so it’s not all bad!
