'The fairest, goodliest and most famous parish church in England' - Elizabeth I The Christian community has worshipped continuously on the site occupied by St Mary Redcliffe Church for well over 800 years. The first church may have built here in Saxon times, when Bristol first became a port – the original quayside was just across the road, below the red sandstone cliff from which this area gets its name, located on what is now Redcliffe Quay. The present church is a treasure of international importance, a Grade I listed building that is a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. All the features of St Mary Redcliffe speak clearly of the beauty and the infinite variety in God’s world. The church building is open daily for all to visit, reflect, pray, join in formal worship or simply “be”. Everyone is welcome here. Use this page to find out more about our church and some of the famous people who have contributed to its rich history.

We went with family and the Children went to a school that was connected with this church and they had only been there for services during school times but they thoroughly enjoyed looking at the Church from another perspective and being able to wander throughout....More

I ride past this church almost everyday and have been inside only once. It's a masterpiece of architecture! Still an active church that serves the community and closely attached school. A visit is recommended

Amazing church, also experienced the priest giving a excelent speach and I'm not religious. The lady at the information was so frendly and gave us a guide. I reccommend it because of great architecture, amazing interior and history of the church.

This church has an amazing history. Take some time to wander around and learn about the church's role in Brighton's history. But the outstanding feature which impressed me the most is the large number of stained glass windows depicting both Biblical stories and later episodes....More

Lovely church in Redcliffe, just over the road from the Mercure Holland hotel. Lose yourself for an hour or so, with a good and simple guide, lots of history and the ceiling and main porch are lovely. I now know how Pennsylvania got its name!!
