Very conveniently located a few minutes' walk from Temple Meads train station, this gothic masterpiece is to your left as you walk into the city.

The stained glass windows are super and with soaring... More

There is a lovely falttering quote from Elizabeth I about this church and her praise is well deserved. The stone work is exquisite, with intricate detail. One particularly interesting aspect of this church is that there are two memorial effigies in the south transept of a man named Channing. When his wife died a memorial was erected to her, which...

People travel from around the world to visit and photograph St Mary's, Redcliffe. More illuminated crowns and coats of arms in the ceiling than any other church . Beautiful building.

Described by Queen Elizabeth I as the fairest church if all England. This is a magnificent building with brilliant exhibited. Learn about the history of Pirates, why there is a Whalebone arch and enjoy music concerts.

I lived in Bristol for over 38 years and this church has always mesmerised me. It is simply stunning and well worth a visit. If you can attend a Sunday mass you will be welcomed as a visitor and offered a coffee and chat afterwards. The choir are fabulous too. This is a church with cathedral status and a must... More

I attended a memorial service within this incredible church. So well maintained. I was invited to attend the event. It was at Christmas and the church was beautiful. The sound of the carols were beautiful, fab acoustics.

Stunning Gothic church and well worth visiting. There are several excellent guides to help you get the best from the visit, and the staff there were helpful and friendly. Whilst we were there a classical singer was rehearsing a piece with the organ and we sat and listened. Fabulous.

A very beautiful church with wonderful stained glass windows. We arrived towards the end of Sunday morning service and were welcomed into the church. Everyone was really friendly and informative. They had a real pride in their church - rightly so.
