Charity description

Bristol Cathedral logo
Bristol Cathedral stands in the middle of Bristol’s vibrant city centre. One of England’s great medieval churches, the Augustinian abbey was founded here in the 12th century. For almost 900 years, the building has continued to be a place of sanctuary, prayer and music. Today the Cathedral boasts some of the most important medieval architecture in the UK – look out for the extraordinary Norman stone carving in the Chapter House, the medieval stained glass preserved in the cloister, the brightly coloured Eastern Lady Chapel and the lofty arches and vaults which distinguish Bristol Cathedral as being of a medieval hall church design. With a rich programme of services and events, as well as shop, café and peaceful garden, Bristol Cathedral is a wonderful place to visit.

Each year, Bristol Cathedral welcomes around 150,000 visitors and worshippers. Recently the Cathedral has created new services for wider congregations; marked occasions of local and national importance; hosted art exhibitions, concerts and theatre; carried out vital repair work to the building; welcomed school children from across the region, provided vital pastoral care to visitors and communities; and taken an active role in championing social justice across the city. All proceeds from venue hire, donation boxes, shop and café go straight back into supporting our building and work. 

Life at the Cathedral would not be possible without the support and generosity of our communities. Thank you for helping us to remain a part of your life and city.
