Great sites from the top of the tower set in well landscaped grounds. Once at the top there are brass plaques pointing out all the places of interest within the 360 degree view as well as the directions and distances to places you could not see!!

Not for the faint hearted and unfit the climb to the tower on the hill is a challenge, and you will need to catch your breath before climbing the stairs. The final ascent is very narrow, but the top gallery offers the best views and the distance and direction arrows on each side are very helpful. Nice to find no... More

The Clifton bridge only offered views on either side the Cabot Tower gives a 360 view if you go to the top level but the first level still has some wonderful views - as it's fee

Tight spiral staircase but worth the effort for the views across the city and harbour area. Surrounded by parkland, on a nice day full of people with picnic's.

Cabot tower is worth checking out, its free and is close to the city centre so why not! walk up the narrow stairs to the top to look over the city then chill out in the gardens after with a BBQ and a Cider!!!

Amazing views, surrounded by beautiful grounds - I spotted squirrels and rabbits whilst walking up to the tower. Definitely worth a visit - one of Bristol's top attractions!

View is amazing, even if you do not want to climb the Tower. If you do climb the Tower the view is well worth the effort.

Definitely nice place. Once you climb up to the top of the tower you can see lovely Bristol and surroundings. Staircase is narrow and but there are "half way" point where you can take a breath and look around. But afterwards you must go to the top. Worth your effort:) Take some nuts - lots of squirrels in the park.

If you like to take some exercise, enjoy a stroll in the park, and want a stunning view, this is for you. It is a pleasant but steep walk up Brandon Hill from the Cathedral end, and the tower has about 100 steps up a narrow spiral staircase, but the view from the top is outstanding. There are copper plates... More
