Walks in Bristol
Dec 2020 • Solo
What a lovely place. As soon as I entered I felt as though I had left Bristol. I can't believe I have never been move. Full paths - lots of spots to stop and sit if you need a rest. Incredible views of Bristol at the top of the hill. Lovely gardens and ponds. Lots of birds about to.

Tower currently closed....
Sep 2020 • Couples
The views over the city & the surrounding area are well worth making the journey up to the tower for but as the tower is currently closed, due to Covid restrictions, there really isn’t a whole lot else to do.
Pretty surrounding gardens & water feature with lots of dog walkers.

Nice climb to the top, but the tower was temporarily closed.

It is half a mile from the Cathedral, but you have to climb Brandon Hill. It was temporarily closed due to COVID-19. At least I enjoyed the environment.

Worth the climb
Aug 2020
Cabot Tower even though currently covid closed is well worth a visit and a climb up the hill to see it, nice mini waterfall at the base, shame currently unable to visit the top.

Beautiful view to the city, need to climb up
Aug 2020
Tower is located on a top of a hill, surrounded by beautiful park and great city view. However you need some fitness to climb up, especially if you are with a kid. Parking would be a problem, though there is some at small roads around it. Unfortunately, no public toilets here. Tower is temporary closed. A must see in Bristol, close by walk from the cathedral.

The tower was closed when we visited, but loved the surroundings, and the peaceful walks through the park

The best vantage point of Bristol you will get
Aug 2020
Not for the faint hearted as the staircase is vey narrow but once you get to the top you are rewarded with the best 360 view of Bristol you can get.

Consider that you can see the tower from most places in Bristol so with that in mind, think what you can see at the top.

Given it's free to enter and easy to get to there is no excuse for not giving it a try, well once it's safe to do so after the current pandemic.

Enjoy calm and serenity above a vibrant city!
Aug 2020 • Family
Cabot Tower offers serene and beautiful park surroundings with plenty of park benches and natural water features to revive tired souls or even calm hectic ones. The path to the tower is very steep and may be impossible to climb for those with mobility issues.

Tiny staircase for a cool view
Feb 2020 • Friends
It's worth the few stairs - although be warned, it's a bit of work going up, the stairway is extremely tiny!
Once you're all the way up, you get a nice view of Bristol. A nice free walk.

Lovely little spot!
Jul 2020 • Couples
The tower is closed at the moment due to Covid but the walk through Brandon Hill Park and up to the tower is lovely. Very much worth the walk which isn’t too challenging either!

I don’t know much about the history of the tower but it looks as if you can go inside (or at least you could before the lockdown) - I imagine the view from the top would be amazing.
