In Bristol, UK, stands a lovely monument to the man who basically discovered (after the Vikings of course) the real North American mainland. He sailed from Bristol (on the good ship Matthew, see it down in the Floating Harbour) and landed at what was to become St. John's, Newfoundland, Canada. The tower is at the high point of the park...

Steep climb to the top of the tower but worth it for the view and great photos you can get. Then on the way out feed the friendly squirrels.

On a nice day you can see a lot of Bristol from the top of this tower. Unlike what an old style sign tells you at the bottom there are no pigeon droppings on the stairs as it has doors and is well kept.

This gives you a great view of the dock area, but getting up there is quite hard work with no chance of disabled people getting up there, it is a tight squeeze on some really awkward steps. It is located in a lovely park area with no shortage of Squirrels.

A vantage point to see most of Bristol!! You can see for miles recently renovated due to structural issues but perfectly safe now.
