This free attraction provides an excellent panorama across Bristol. Not recommended for small children due to steep spiral staircase.

Cabot tower is must to visit in the centre of bristol. You can combine this area with the docks at bristol harbour side . We had a picnic on the grass and just enjoyed the views! At night you can watch the beam light at the top of the towers very near bristol park street for shopping etc.

A nice place to come with family, friends and a romantic interest..... The winding stairs can be quite a challenge, but, they make the view all the more better.

Really worth a visit - pleasant, relaxing gardens (plenty of squirrels to feed) and then the tower itself. Magnificent with absolutely stunning views.

Impressive tower! If you climb up, you'll have a very fascinating 360 degree view over Bristol, so make sure to bring your camera!

I decided to climb Cabot Tower looking for an opportunity to take photos of the city and it certainly is an incredible 360° view. It is nice to spot various attractions of Bristol. Perhaps wouldn't advise it on a windy day!

Climb all the way to the top and you can have a 360 degree view of Bristol. Be warned the climb is quite steep and not very fun on a busy day as there is not much room to pass on the windy staircase. But well worth it once at the top

Always nice after walking uphill to visit the Clifton suspension bridge to walk over towards the Cabot tower. Lovely views from the top of the hill. On the way back from there you could stop off and visit the Georgian house...amazing to see how they lived years ago.
