Welcome to Bristol Cathedral

Bristol Cathedral

In roughly 1140, the Abbey of St Augustine was founded by Robert Fitzhardinge. Over the years, the Abbey was altered, eventually becoming the model of the Hall Church style in England. When the Abbey was finally dissolved in 1539, the Nave was demolished and rebuilt, and became what is now the landmark Bristol Cathedral. The original Abbey Gatehouse and the Chapter House, which dates back to 1165, remain and visitors can enjoy the beauty and peace of this ancient holy site and its surrounds. The Cathedral also hosts free music recitals at certain times of year. Public guided tours of the Cathedral are available every Saturday at 11am.
