A spectacular cathedral, nicely formed, not too big. Lovely painted sections showing how colourful these places of worship must have been hundreds of years ago. Fantastic bosses, such colour and detail. The chapter house is well worth a visit, such texture and detail. The ceilings...More

Don't be deterred if the sides man outside warns that there is a service on, If you are lucky enough to catch a choral service with the lights streaming in through the stained glass it's a special experience. Even if you are not a believer...More

Been coming to Bristol for decades but with an hour to kill decided to walk across the green and take a look. More like a big urban church than the usual notion of an English cathedral but interesting and nonetheless impressive in many parts. Wish...More

It has to be admitted that this is not one of England's great cathedrals but is still worth a visit. It does have a good setting, in the city centre with a big green space in front of it. And it does have a particular...More

We were greeted on entry and made to feel very welcome. All parts of the cathedral were very accessible and the choir stalls and the area behind them were particularly stunning. We loved the stained glass windows and enjoyed hearing the history behind the designs.

Bristol cathedral isn't one of the best known cathedral's in the country, but it is worth visiting. The exterior is beautiful, with an interior equally as good.

This is the most amazing, free, open place to come and walk around and sit and comtemplate in. The building is spectacular. That we can freely access it is incredible.

This old building must have been bombed or bomb damaged as it has little to recommend it now - they do have choral evensong at 3.30pm. Visited at 4.50pm and was told I could not look around as they closed at 5pm
