The Georgian House

The Georgian House is an 18th century, six storey townhouse that has been restored and decorated to its original glory. There are 11 rooms spread over four floors, displayed as they might have looked in the 18th century providing an insight into life above and below stairs. Admission is free. www.bristol.gov.uk

 

Bristol Cathedral

A church has probably stood on this site for over a thousand years, but it came to prominence in 1140 when Robert Fitzhardinge founded the Abbey of St. Augustine: the Chapter House and Abbey Gatehouse remain clearly to be seen. Bristol Cathedral is the finest example of a 'Hall Church' in Great Britain. www.bristol-cathedral.co.uk

 

St Mark's Church

St Mark's Church is now known as the Lord Mayor's Chapel. It is partly 13th century, but the east end was reconstructed around 1520. The tower dates from 1487. Grotesque carvings decorate the exterior of the tower and nave. Inside is a tomb with effigies of two Crusaders, said to be those of the founders. www.about-bristol.co.uk
