Immerse yourself in the history of Bristol Cathedral


Bristol Cathedral, filming location of BBC series Wolf Hall, is a beautiful religious landmark that makes for the perfect inspirational break.

Bristol’s beautiful and historic Cathedral is located on College Green in the West End of the city. The nave, choir and aisles are all the same height, making the Cathedral the major example of a hall church in Great Britain and one of the finest to be found anywhere in the world. 

One of the main filming locations for the acclaimed BBC series – even doubling for Westminster Abbey for Anne Boleyn’s coronation – Bristol Cathedral now offers exclusive Wolf Hall tours. During the tour, audiences can learn more about this fascinating building as a medieval Abbey and a 21st century film location as well as hear key passages from Hilary Mantel’s much-loved novels brought to life by actor David Collins, in the very spot they were filmed.
