The present church is probably the fourth building on this site. It is very close to the original quayside on the Avon, which explains the dedication to St Nicholas, the patron saint of sailors. The crypt of the church, built in about 1400, still remains.
St Nicholas Church is home to The Hogarth triptych. In 1756 William Hogarth completed a great triptych depicting the Sealing of the Tomb, an altarpiece commissioned for St Mary Redcliffe Church.
Today St Nicholas Church houses the Bristol Archaeological Services offices, but is still accessible to visitors from Monday to Friday, during office hours. If you would like to arrange to see the altarpiece please ring 0117 903 9010.
