Dropped in whilst doing our own walking tour of the city - the building is stunning and the man on duty at the welcome stand was friendly and knowledgeable - presumably a volunteer? No entry fee but please do put something in the donations box...More

Another great church. No entry fee and access to most areas. Worth a quick 10 minute visit if walking by.

We used the jump on jump off Bristol tour bus that we caught at Temple Meads station so parking wasn't a requirement.
