This church is lovely. It has exotic carvings on the outside of the church. It has exquisite stained glass throughout. The gothic ceilings are unlike anything I have seen in Europe. The "lattice patterns" on the ceilings are not only arranged in interesting geometric shapes, but have "hidden" carvings such as dogs, flowers, even Medieval "green men" that are understood... More

Visited briefly on a whistle stop tour of Bristol last weekend. Read reviews on TripAdvisor of the lovely stained glass windows. They are everywhere. A sight to behold. Well worth a visit. Stayed about half an hour all in all.

St Mary Redcliffe is a highly recommended historical site in Bristol, with is Gothic historic architecture built in the 14th century, it is a very loved place its easy to tell by how gorgeously preserved it is - the church is the burial place of Sir William Penn, which many people dont know. I very much recommend visiting.

A very friendly welcome. Beautiful inside. Amazing that its just a 'parish' church! You can catch a bus up to Clifton to see the suspension bridge just outside across college green.

We visited St Mary Redcliffe as part of a walk round Bristol places of interest. The Church has historical interest and a very nice Cafe below for a welcome rest stop and good value refreshment.

Historic Bristol has what was called the fairest church of all England in St Mary Redcliffe. A short walk from Temple Meads station, this church contains some beautiful statues and memorials, also a wonderful 4 manual pipe organ. Having played here for a service, I can say how thrilling it is to make music in this glorious building.If you get... More

Beautiful place. Very calming inside. Also rich with history, there's a lot of stories to be told inside it's walls. We went on the Bristol heritage day and got to ring the bells which was a pretty good experience! Can't believe how heavy they were!!

It is difficult to capture the variety and beauty of this church. I knew nothing of it before my visit. I do not have an architectural vocabulary to describe adequately the interior or exterior of the building. I was struck by the wide varieties of light in the building entering through many stained glass windows. The building had an active... More

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. It is as large as some cathedrals and very well-maintained. we spent 20 minutes wandering around and could have easily spent much more time in there. The stained glass windows are super and with soaring... More
