  • Nice church. Interesting tour (and views) of rooftop during Bristol Open Day as well. Cute tea and biscuits being sold downstairs.
  • Do you really need to sound the bells for an hour and a half. If you really, really, really feel the need to do so, then, at least, play more than one tune. Anyone else doing similar would have been slapped with an ASBO
  • A fantastic building full of history.
  • Great gothic archiecture.
  • Lovely venue for a traditional wedding
