Hopefully you are neither claustrophobic or afraid of heights but, if not, you will climb to the most spectacular view in Bristol.

There are two top places to take my friends and visitor's arriving in Bristol number one the Clifton Suspension Bridge and then after a harbourside tour a walk to the Cabot Tower, not only tremendous views but a lovely kept park with ponds and a small nature reserve - perfect too for a picnic - always an ice cream van...

This was a great climb up on Brandon Hill Park, rewarded with the best view in Bristol. Our visiting day was very windy and the higher you get you'll notice, but it was part of the fun! Recommendable!

Yes, its a little walk from the street, and up the stairs (narrow), but the view is fantastic, and free

This tower is situated very close the Park street and city centre. Once you are on top of the tower, you get to see the magnificent view of Bristol. There are a plenty of shops close to this tower, if you fancy coffee or food. I do recommend this place.

Great view of surrounding area - we'd been to the suspension bridge earlier that day, so it was great to see how far we'd come. Plaques on each side of the top level show you what you can see. Stairs are narrow and spiralled which is to be expected, but they were level and in good condition.

The tower was lovely, lots of stairs but well worth the hike when you get to the top, as the views over bristol are great, family and dog friendly.

It's not too much of a trek and you can see some great views of Bristol up the tower. If you take a walk off to the side it opens up and you can sit on a bench and get some even better views of the area! Just be careful in wet weather!
