This was beautiful day, celebrating my Granddaughters Graduation in the historic Bristol Cathedral, the same Cathedral, my dear late husband received his graduation award I felt very proud to hear my granddaughters name called out and the memories will stay with me forever. This beautiful Cathedral is well worth a visit, with plenty of parking close by, don't miss it.
This is a superb Cathedral, but try to guess its age before you go in and be surprised! Whilst parts of it date back to the 12th Century, it has been added to over the centuries. A great place to look around. Especially poignant is the little Bishops graveyard around the back of the Cathedral. A very peaceful place on... More
This is an interesting cathedral. Bristol has a long and fascinating hgistory and the Cathedral has been an integral part of that history. All the key families are represented and the link between the Norman Barons and the Berkeley family is fully endorsed here. Some good architecture here as well.
My Wife and two young children had a wander round this great cathedral. Looking up at the ceiling alone was amazing, intricate carved stone work arches, gargoyles and enough delicate touches to blow anyone's mind with the question "how did they do that " . This imposing building has the effect of humbling the person taking in its grand and... More

Of ‘hall’ construction i.e. the nave and transept roofs are all of the same height, the height is restricted to two galleries whereas most English... More
Had the privilege of singing here with my choir this weekend. Staff were kind and helpful, and the Cathedral was a very pleasant space, with lovely chapter house and cloisters with (later) stained glass.
On a recent visit to Bristol , we decided to check out the Cathedral. Its a beauty! Wonderful architecture, splendid stainded glass, and a haven of peace inside. There were some people inside the day we were there, sitting, praying and enjoying the peaceful atmosphere. Its a unique cathedral and really heartwarming. Really recommend on a visit to Bristol.
Perhaps I'm suffering from cathedral fatigue, but I didn't find much in this cathedral worth going out of my way for a visit. Like many cathedrals in England, Bristol seems to be using some of its floor space for art installations. This cathedral is no York Minster, Canterbury, or Salisbury cathedrals, nor should one expect it to be. However, it... More
