The tower is attractive and if you have been to see the replica of Cabot's ship The Matthew then a visit to Cabot Tower links in nicely. Of course the views are great, not just from the tower itself but also from the lovely surrounding gardens. Paths are steep and sloping in parts but as other reviewers have mentioned, it... More

This is one for the fit and energetic, but the views from the tower over Bristol city are well worth the effort. The surrounding park has some attractive walks away from the city traffic.

One of the best places to appreciate the city sky line from. If feeding squirrels is your thing also take along some food for these furry friends who are as bold here as I have seen anywhere.

Cabot Tower is a folly set in a park in the centre of Bristol. The park is well worth a visit as indeed is the tower. If you have the stamina climb the stairs to the top of the tower to get some amazing views across the city.

An oasis all on its own, tucked away at the top of park street, a must to stroll round and enjoy the park, take a picnic

Amazing 360 degree view about the beautifully ornate tower! Very enjoyable and particularly good in the evening when its quiet in the surrounding parkland (a great place for a picnic!)

I live in Bristol and, of all the tourist attractions here, this is the one that makes visitors go "Wow." The views over Bristol are awesome and the stairs are doable for people in reasonably fit condition. It's free to go up and you get a priceless view. Highly recommended.

The tower is free entry and offers beautiful views over the city. There is literally no excuse not to visit. There is even information at the top pointing out landmarks. Worth the visit and very recommended.

Walkable from the city centre but not suitable for the elderly or infirm. Climb the 100 plus stairs for spectacular views of Bristol!
