Bristol Cathedral

About

Bristol’s beautiful and historic Cathedral is located on College Green in the West End of the city. A church has almost certainly stood on the site for over a thousand years, but it came to prominence in 1140 when Robert Fitzhardinge founded the Abbey of St Augustine. The Chapter House and Abbey Gatehouse remain clear to see, and the other remains are to be found within Bristol Cathedral School.

The eastern end of the Cathedral, especially in the choir, gives Bristol Cathedral a unique place in the development of British and European architecture. The nave, choir and aisles are all the same height, making Bristol Cathedral the major example of a hall church in Great Britain and one of the finest to be found anywhere in the world.

Bristol Cathedral is free to visit and is open to the public 365 days a year

Times:
8am - 5pm Monday to Saturday, unless you wish to attend Choral Evensong or Evening Prayer at 5.15pm
8am - 3.15pm Saturday and Sunday, unless you wish to attend Choral Evensong at 3.30pm
