Approved by Queen Elizabeth I herself! Sep 01, 2011
Although a church has been on this site since the Anglo Saxons were around in England, the present church was constructed during the twelfth to fifteenth centuries and currently serves as the tallest building in Bristol. Queen Elizabeth I is also said to have loved this parish church, proclaiming it to be the “fairest, goodliest, and most famous” in England. The monarch was probably right, as out of all the churches I’ve seen in England, this one is rather impressive and seems to give most cathedrals a run for their money. The art and attention to detail is magnificent, and I particularly enjoyed the helpful map of the church (laminated and available for use inside the church) and the information leaflet available in several languages. As it’s not far from central Bristol, I would think of popping into this church for a quick visit.
