I strongly suggest visitors to Bristol visit this amazing cathedral. It is free to enter, which is a must for me with cathedrals, and explore the stunning interior. The gothic exterior is imposing which adds to the beauty of the building. The gardens were lovely...More

Disappointed to report this Cathedral lacks visitor appeal. There was little to recommend it to visitors.

Well worth a visit. Standing next to a large area of green open space, close to the City Hall (another impressive example of interesting design/architecture), the Cathedral is somehow vast/spacious but intimate at the same time. You can wander around the various chapels, viewing interesting...More
