We climbed the tower on a glorious day and were rewarded with a beautiful view. The equivalent of about 11 flights of stairs gets you to the top where you can see about 4 miles to the horizon. Each side has got a map showing landmarks from that view. It was clean and well maintained and for no cost it... More

What's not to like? A monument to an Italian who settled in Bristol before sailing to become the first European in America since the Vikings. The monument was begun as a 400 year anniversary of his discovery of Newfoundland. Beautiful views across the city - a just reward for a steep walk through Brandon Hill park to get to it.

Free attraction. Lovely walk through parkland in a quiet haven away from main streets. Climb the steep, single file and narrow, stone spiral staircase. The staircase is inside the tower. There is a hand rail. The first level provides fantastic 360 degree views of the city. There is a mid height wall protecting you, and some overhangs to step out... More

Well worth a visit if you want to see superb views of Bristol. There are excellent views of the SS Great Britain, the river Avon and the docks, plus the cathedral and the university. The views across to the Clifton Suspension Bridge aren't great although you can make out the twin towers. Best of all, entry is free. As others... More

Climb the Brandon Hill and then the Cabot Tower for one of the best views in all of Bristol. Literally breathtaking!

Nice views from the top the tower and free to go up. Very narrow stairs up and down so may not be suitable for everyone

First time up the tower and not disappointed. The views across the whole of Bristol, especially on this sunny day, we're stunning. Going up isn't too strenuous but as this is an unmanned monument it can be a very tight squeeze on the very narrow spiral stairs meeting people coming up if you're moving down and vice versa.
