We walked up to this local landmark through the twisting footpaths of the small park it sits in. Entry was free. There is a tight narrow staircase taking you up to the first viewing platform which is even more difficult up the second lift to the top. It is very difficult to pass someone on the steps and on a...

Cabot Tower is a great walk, once you have done the climb the view is spectacular. The stairs are a bit narrow but passable. Make sure you go right to the top to enjoy the best part. The surrounding area is beautiful very green quite a few benches and places to sit and enjoy the view. The paths are quite... More

it's in a park in the middle of the city and when you scale its steps you can choose which direction you want to look (first). great vistas of the city and beyond, ice creams outside in the summer or 2 mins walk back to park st for shopping, food and bars.

We visited the tower in June and were lucky to have a beautifully sunny day to enjoy the walk and the views. The park is gorgeous but we also enjoyed the walk to get there through the streets and discovered some shops we would've otherwise missed. Climbing the tower is not for the faint hearted but it's worth it when... More

If you are visiting Cabot Tower/Bristol, i would recommend to go to the top of the tower. There are quite a few steps but the view worth it.

Surrounded by a beautiful park, Cabot Tower is most definetly worth a visit. The stairs to the top of the tower are narrow, but it's not too high. The tower closes at around 4 pm in the wintertime.

Brandon Hill is an amazing oasis of peace and quiet just a few minutes uphill walk from the busy streets of Bristol. The climb to the top of Cabot Tower was worth the effort for the fantastic views but be warned that the steps are narrow. When a large group of people want to pass you in the opposite direction...

Read about and was looking forward to the view from the tower. Enjoyed a walk up the hill and through the lovely park with landscaped gardens, waterfalls, nice trees and squirrels . Liked the design of the tower from outside but the stairs inside were awful: dark, narrow and small with only a rail on one side. Started walking up... More
