Overview

'The fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England' - Elizabeth I The Christian community has worshipped continuously on the site occupied by St Mary Redcliffe Church for well over 800 years. The first church may have built here in Saxon times, when Bristol first became a port – the original quayside was just across the road, below the red sandstone cliff from which this area gets its name, located on what is now Redcliffe Quay. The present church is a treasure of international importance, a Grade I listed building that is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. All the features of St Mary Redcliffe speak clearly of the beauty and the infinite variety in God’s world. The church building is open daily for all to visit, reflect, pray, join in formal worship or simply “be”. Everyone is welcome here. Use this page to find out more about our church and some of the famous people who have contributed to its rich history.

Great place to visit lots of friendly squrles to feed if you have some Brazil nuts with you need to be quite fit as its quite a steep climb but when you get to the top the view is stunning.

Stunning architecture. Apparently it was one of Queen Elizabeth the 1st favourite places to visit. Better than most abbeys and cathedrals in my opinion.

Attended an excellent organ concert followed by a private guided tour. The cafe in the crypt is also excellent run by people recovering from drug or alcohol abuse.
