Can be seen from a mile away, beautiful outside, kind people volunteering on the inside, go see it!!
A beautiful and atmospheric church near to the centre of the city. Well worth a short walk to see it. It was described by Elizabeth 1st as the 'fairest in the land' and in 500 years it has only added layers of history to this building since then. This a must see place for any visitors to Bristol interested in... More
We went here on the recommendation of other reviewers who rated it more highly than the cathedral and were not disappointed. We always visit the church wherever we go and found this one of the most beautiful we've seen.
This church has a lot of history and its beautiful spire was the last thing to be completed at a later date it is built above a warren of manmade red sandstone caves.It also has a Tram rail embedded in the cemetary from the second world war which was caused by a bomb blast by a german bomb
It was unusual these days to see a large church that still has pews. The only problem we had was that we picked the wrong day as the organist was practising and it was very loud, but it didn't stop our enjoyment.

Not massive but right on the edge of the city centre and has lots of interesting little features that are highlighted in the guide notes. Connection to the Penn's of Pennsylvania, Cabot's Matthew ship. Mainly I liked viewing the bosses,so be ready to look upwards and possibly take binoculars. There are over 1000 to see and all different.
I live in this city, and still think St Mary is an amazing place to visit for it's serenity and design!
The tolling of the bells must have surely been heard in heaven. Walking past the grounds when the bells are going off is a treat. The building from the outside is beautiful, especially at night or in the early morning. I did not make it inside for a visit yet, but will this winter.
