St Mary Redcliffe Church CREDIT Emily Whitfield-Wicks


St Mary Redcliffe is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture, which has stood on this site for some 800 years. Within its hallowed walls, you will find a superb collection of carved bosses, elegant 18th century ironwork, beautiful stained glass and a world famous organ.

The church is sited on the red cliffs, above the floating harbour, and was originally at the very centre of shipping and industry, which is the key to its history. The merchants of the Port of Bristol began and ended their voyages at the shrine of Our Lady of Redcliffe.

      This is well worth a look. Certainly testament to the wealth that flowed through Bristol, in my towns and cities this church would qualify as a cathedral itself. Nice ladies looking after it who give... Read full review

      Wonderful place to worship. Cafe in the crypt is good. Stained glass, architecture, tombs, etc are an interesting glimpse into Bristol’s past. Read full review
