Excellent cathedral

This is a nice building. Most of it is not nearly as old as it looks - the nave and the towers date from the nineteenth century. But it's none the worse for that, although I... read more

Impressive and huge cathedral located away from the busier shopping area of Bristol. Free to enter (but you can donate some money) this cathedral is as beautiful inside as it is out, so is worth an hour of your time to look inside at the detailed stained glass and sculptures.

we were only able to spend a brief fairly rushed visit to the Cathedral as there was a graduation ceremony scheduled for the day but it is clearly an impressive evocative building which we would be keen to spend some more reflective time in and around on a future visit.

The Cathedral is a beautiful place to visit and I especially love the stained glass windows. Love the setting near the green.

It is a nice building but small as cathedrals go. Much smaller than the one at Gloucester but impressive still.

What a wonderful cathedral. Not the largest but very welcoming and a joy to walk round. Great little coffee shop. Had a brilliant afternoon wandering around with my camera. A joy to behold.

Fabulous architecture, and works art to behold. Beautiful prayer area. Until November 18th there's a poignant memorial to the heroes of World War I.

Well worth a visit, the stained glass windows are remarkable. The "Shrouds of the Somme" exhibition is on at the moment on the college Green too

I visited the cathedral after taking in the remembrance event on College Green. It is a very beautiful building with a mixture of styles ranging from the twelfth century to the modern day. The stained glass in the North Aisle of the Victorian Nave seemed particularly poignant. Replaced after bomb damage during WW 2 it pays tribute to those who... More
