A Grade II-Listed building, Clifton Cathedral is much newer than most British cathedrals, dating back to the 1970s. It's only a short walk from the University of Bristol and a wide choice of restaurants, hotels and lively nightlife venues.
About Clifton Cathedral
The current structure replaced a much older incomplete church that had existed since the early 19th Century but fell into dereliction due to its awkward hillside location. The current Roman Catholic church also features a unique narthex (the lobby area opposite the alter) that contains two stained glass windows that were designed with thousands of fragments of glass
