The building incorporates parts of a C!2 abbey and is full of history. In addition there is a magnificent C19 nave and beautiful stained glass. Entry is free and the volunteers are friendly and helpful.

Sadly, no Choral Evensong on the day we visited. A warm welcome as soon as we arrived, and a marvellous stroll around this beautiful working building. Lit a candle for my Dad, and was happy to make a (gift aided) donation to the running.

We didn't have a lot of time here but we were made very welcome at the door. Entry is free- you can give a donation. Steeped in history and design is very interesting. Only 5 minutes from the city centre.

Started as a Catholic Abbey but Henry 8th threw out the priests and changed the name to Bristol Cathedral. Beautiful building. Lots of statues and stain glass windows. Lovely acoustics and welcoming.
