St Mary Redcliffe Church reviews
This famous church is situated close to the water so you can easily walk along the river, towards the city, to take a peep at it. It was “saved” from destruction by the mass bombings of WW2 by fire..... more »
The St Mary Redcliffe Church is worth locating while wandering near the harbourside / docks its a stunning building but the cathedral is better. more »
A real joy to visit. Its such a grand example of craftsmanship. Beautiful details hidden in unexpected places. I love it. A must see place if you are visiting Bristol.
