One of the oldest churches in Bristol or in the entire United Kingdom for that matter, the St. Mary Redcliffe’s Church dates back more than 900 years. It is one of the most influential and significant Christian landmarks in the country, and as such is one of the most popular tourist attractions for visitors to Bristol who are looking for an attraction that reveals something of the local history.
The Church itself still holds services, which are worth attending if only to see the beautiful architecture in an up close and personal way. Period archways line the upper floors and wonderful stained glass windows fill the chambers with a warm, rich light. The steeple itself is one of the grandest to be seen anywhere, stretching high into the sky and dominating the skyline for miles around with sharp angles and a prominent profile. Visitors to the church will also find themselves in close proximity to other Bristol attractions.
