“WONDERFUL ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

.

Wonderful in all respects. The views are tremendous. Take a picnic on a sunny day and sit on the grass or on a bench and just enjoy the views and the ambiance.

Go on a Sunday morning and watch the elderly men almost literally hand feed the squirrels.

If it snows then go there with your snowboard or toboggan and enjoy a ride down the grass slopes.

Always a joy to visit and just be peaceful.

“What's not to Like!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Right so its free and there are great views of the city from the top. Set in nice gardens - you can see for miles. Not quite as tall as the Wallis Memorial Tower but the view is excellent and different.

“Astonishing views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 7, 2014

I fell in love with the views were just unreal I was speechless. The squirrels are so clever on the hills. The green hills are just so colourful and plenty of benches to take in the clean Bristol air. Very near the university and great fun walking all the stairs for the best views of the entire city.

“Awesome views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2014

You won't get a better panoramic view of the city for free! Brilliant views in all directions. Only downside is when it's busy the narrow stairway can be a bit of a minefield to negotiate, but that adds to the atmosphere and experience if you have a bit of patience! :-)
