a oasis in a busy bristol

The tower was lovely, lots of stairs but well worth the hike when you get to the top, as the views over bristol are great, family and dog friendly.

It's not too much of a trek and you can see some great views of Bristol up the tower. If you take a walk off to the side it opens up and you can sit on a bench and get some even better views of the area! Just be careful in wet weather!

Bristol is a stunning city, partly due to all its uneven ground, and Cabot Tower allows you panoramic views of all of it. Try to go on a cloudless day, when it's not too windy (the wind is rather biting up there!) and you won't regret it. If you're visiting Bristol, this is well worth doing (although you may be...

A lovely place to visit. Lots of squirrels about who appear not to be frightened of humans..they actually come up and take food off you if you hold it out to them and stay quiet and still. My little one loved it. We hiked up to the top if the tower, its very narrow and very high, couldnt breath by... More

A very steep climb up lots of steps but the views from the top were great. Probably only worth it if the weather is clear or you wouldn't see much.

I got taken here for a first date as an undergraduate. It was a chilly day and was even colder at the top of the tower but Bristol looked gorgeous in the sunshine. Since then I have taken all friends and family who have visited up the tower. The info boards point out what you can see and it really... More

Free entry and amazing view. Definitely would recommend to visit when in Bristol, nice to get away from the city feel whilst you're still in the city!
