Definitely worth the amount of steps or taste to get to the top as the 360 views of Bristol are breath taking. The steps are OK up until the first level but going from the first to second stage the steps do narrow and so may not be suitable for everyone

Gets very congested going up and down stairs as gets narrow at the top, but I took my 3 year old up with our backpacks and we were fine , just be aware for kids not used to stairs. Lovely views and nice and central to everything.

A 15 minute walk from the centre through a lovely park narrow steps to reach the top and can get busy. Views once up the top are stunning on a clear day. This is a f4ee attraction too.

Nice view to the city, but you have to climb up a bit and the last part of steps is quite narrow, so it could be difficult for some persons.

Cabot tower is situated on the 'summit' of Brandon Hill and, assuming that you're OK with walking up 108 narrow steps, the views from the top on a clear day are spectacular. There's a couple of levels to stop off on your way up, and the views just get better and better with SS Great Britain to the south, Clifton... More

Definitely worth a visit. It's free to get in, and the view is amazing. You can pretty much see all of Bristol. Take a jacket though, as it can get quite cold up there.

After a lot of stairs, on a tight stair case the view at the top is well worth the effort. 360 degree view of Bristol. The grounds of the tower are well kept and a great place for a walk around.

A free attraction to visit in Bristol, and a nice way to spend the afternoon on a warm, dry day. It affords nice views of the city, and if you take nets and a picnic, children can enjoy fishing for tiddlers in the pools in the surrounding gardens. Do note though, elderly visitors may find the hills and steps rather... More
