It happened to be the 11th November when we visited this chapel again and we were delighted to sit and hear the choir and musicians rehearsing for an Armistice Day concert later that day. The organ was in full voice, the choir in full throat,...More

Sitting on College Green in the centre of Bristol, the Lord Mayor's Chapel is where the great and the good of the city are interred, going back 800 years. Marble statues and plaques commemorating all those mayors. If a new mayor were to die, they...More

A hidden gem, a must see inside! Such marvellous old pews (thank goodness they haven't replaced them with chairs!), stained glass windows, wonderful choir stalls. A haven of peace in the busting City Centre.

I love visiting this quant church. It's not how you imagine it would be when you go inside. Perfect to visit after Bristol cathedral or on its own.
