Stunning Sep 02, 2011
Constructed in the twelfth century, the cathedral sits in a prime location in Bristol. I think it strikes quite a presence in the leafy and green area, and the coloured gorilla statue near the entrance (dotted in prime locations around the city too) is pretty funny too. The cathedral was built in the Norman, Gothic and Gothic Revival styles, but only the latter two styles are mainly obvious to visitors. I thought the Elder Lady Chapel was particularly impressive and the highly decorated style which can be seen just behind the high altar. The colours and decoration are stunning, and I understand that wider areas of the cathedral would have been similarly maintained at an earlier point. Photographs are allowed and near the entrance, they have some helpful outlines of the cathedral to guide you through your visit.

I lived in Bristol for a year and love the city. You're right about the great location of the cathedral Vipin. I hope you found the rest of the place as grand.
