Nothing to dislike, just a place to visit for see how much wonderful is Bristol! On the top of the tower you can see all the old and new city, the Avon and the amazing park Brandon Hill.

The views from Cabot Tower are fantastic. The building itself could do with a spruce up and better maintenance which is a shame as it's so historic and important - come Bristol City Council get your act together! The gardens surrounding the tower are lovely too.
