Visiting Saint Stephen’s
The church building is open most weekdays, from 9:30 until 14:30 (do contact the church office to check if you want to be certain that the church is open when you plan to visit) and can be entered from Saint Stephen’s Avenue, through the red door in the porch at the base of the tower. During the colder months of the year the red door may be closed, but if the gates are open the church itself will be, too. You may want to have a look at the calendar to see whether there is an event that you want to combine with your visit.
As part of Bristol’s Old City Saint Stephen’s is best visited today (as it has been for most of the last five hundred years) on foot. There is some nearby on-street parking which is limited to one hour. The nearest car parks are Trenchard Street, NCP Charlotte Street and Bristol’s College Green car park (4 hr parking limit) which allows a combined visit to Bristol Cathedral as well.
