Wonderful views

This is a lovely part of Bristol, go up the tower and spend as long as you like there. There's no charge, but the steps are narrow and steep and they can be busy.

This tower is situated just off Park Street but not many people seem to be aware of its existence! There is a lovely park surrounding which is full of squirrels and nice places to walk. The tower itself has a bit of a climb but once at the top you have a very unique view of Bristol.

I've been going up the tower since I was a kid and I still love it now. You get a completely 360 degree view of the city at one of the highest points. It's completely free, but can get quite cramped up at the top. It can also get really windy at the top, so

The Cabot Tower is located on a top of a hill in a beautiful and clean park and it offers probably the best views in Bristol. The entrance is free and you should be careful at the narrow spiral staircase.

Its a tower, it's in a lovely park, I spent days and days there as a young kid (Mum was great at doing fun outdoors stuff all the time) and its still magical. Can't understand why the terraced pools don't flow any more. All stagnant really....

It's a nice place to visit if you are doing Bristol, good views, nice park, a bit of peace in a busy City. But where it really comes into its own is when the City has a firework display with all its festivals. Best place in the City to watch

Cabot tower is worth a visit if you are in Bristol. Cabot tower is situated on Brandon Hill, which is a very steep hill. Don't attempt if you have mobility problems as there are lots of steps to get to the top of the tower, but it's really worth the effort. The views are fantastic over Bristol. There is also... More

Placed in a beautiful old Park, perfect for walking. A view from the Tower is astonishing, you can see a whole city around.

If you have an hour to spend on a nice day in Bristol, this is one of the places I would head too. Didn't expect it to be so cool, I am easily pleased by an old tower and tiny stairs, but loved it. Great view from the top and a lovely park to walk around. If you are of... More
