The Cathedral Church of SS. Peter and Paul is the Roman Catholic cathedral in the English city of Bristol. Located in the Clifton area of the city, it is the seat of the Diocese of Clifton and is known as Clifton Cathedral.
Commissioned in 1965, the design was by R. Weeks, F.S. Jennett and A. Poremba of the Percy Thomas Partnership.
The Cathedral was consecrated on 29 June 1973, replacing a wooden-framed pro-Cathedral that had been built in the mid-19th century. It can group 1,000 people closely around the high altar.
- A copper tube containing plans of the cathedral and other items were buried under the foundation stone.
- The cathedral is constructed from reinforced concrete clad with panels of Aberdeen granite.
- The narthex contains two stained glass windows constructed from over 8,000 pieces of glass collected from England, France and Germany.
