The gardens were a bit sad and neglected and overgrowing with weeds but the walk is worth it to get to see the views and the beautiful tower celebrating 400 years since Cabot discovered North America.

Really enjoyed our visit to this beautiful tower, and was surprised to find how easily accessible it was, no charge, just go in, climb the narrow, stone, spiral staircase and at the top admire the magnificent views. Can imagine it could be a little difficult if it was busy, as passing in the stairwell would be difficult but early on... More

If you can manage the steps, it's well worth climbing to the top. Sunset is particularly beautiful up there. Great views of the whole city.

Cabot Tower, in the middle of Brandon Park, is a great part to a walk around Bristol. Climb to the top for a great view all around the city (and further afield on a good day). About 70 steps to the first level then another 40 or so in a much tighter spiral but worth the climb.

You can see Bristol and beyond from the top of Cabot Tower. It's free! Good place to take nice photos. But be careful: there are many stairs to reach the top. It's a hard journey for elderly or disabled people.

The tower is set in beautifully kept gardens - great site for a picnic in summer. It is free to go up, but closes quite early - we only just got there in time. Not as much of a challenge to get up the stairs as I thought it would be, because we'd already got up the hill. You could... More

Lovely sunny day last weekend, went up the tower with a friend to finally be able to see my hometown from above. Wonderful views, well worth a visit!
