The cathedral is without a doubt beautiful, though not in the intimate way of St Mary Redcliffe. Although visitors are provided with a map, there is no information about the highlights marked on it. In some cases the lack is made up by information signs. There's a little cafe to stop for a cuppa and quite a nice churchyard/ garden.... More

Very friendly welcome as I arrived, and I took a quick walk around this stunning Cathedral. It's jaw dropping to look at, with many nooks and crannies and interesting tales.

visited for a lunchtime organ recital. recitals are performed every Tuesday at 1315 hours - its not always organ music but also choirs etc. 45 minutes in a wonderful environment, and free, though donations are of course accepted . Well worth a visit if you like that sort of thing :-)

The cathedral is a nice calming plade to go and sit during the middle of the week and if you go at certain times then you get to here the choir sing and it gives a really uplifting feeling.

We visited this cathedral on a very cold day but felt warm inside. It is very well restored and preserved.
