Lovely parkland setting and great views over Bristol and surrounding area - with plaques pointing out various landmarks. Quick and easy visit but well worth while.

This tower is built on one of the highest spots in Bristol. Surprisingly, in this day and age (2015) climbing the internal stairs to the viewing points is free and the views across Bristol are wonderful, including views of the SS Great Britain and the Clifton Suspension Bridge

Really enjoyed Cabot Tower - the gardens around it have little streams and ponds which the children loved and you can explore around it. The tower itself is fun to climb and free so that is always good. Not a wet weather venture however.

Went here today to chill out and show someone a special place to unwind . Fed the squirrels as I always do . They are quite tame and eat from your hand . So glad I found here

It is impressive that we can enjoy the view of sunset in the early spring season. It is so beautiful!!! I hope we can come and enjoy more time in this summer!!!

Set in the great Brandon Park this is a great oasis in the middle of the city. The tower has awesome views all over Bristol and is well worth a visit. Try to grab an ice cream nearby at the V double Moo van if it's there - delightful!
