Go on a foggy day and you'll see nothing. On a clear day you'll see for miles. On street parking isn't cheap and you need to be physically able but aside from that it is a great climb to the top.

It's in the city centre, walking distance to Harbourside, all the independence stores on Park Street, Bristol Cathedral. We went there with the sushi take away from MS and took loads of photos.

Wonderful way to see the city Situated at the top of the tallest point in Bristol, Cabot Tower is situated in a lovely park with many park benches and footpaths. Many vantage points for photos or even a spot for a picnic.

This is a lovely hidden gem just off Park St. With great views of the city and the park. Also has a small children's park at the bottom.

As long as you are not put off by worn, narrow stairs in a claustrophobic environment, the view from the top is really magnificent. Do take time to read the plaques on the side, which explain how and why this magnificent erection in Bristol's landscape was constructed.

Really worth a climb up Cabot Tower if you can for the magnificent views across Bristol. It is w=quite a climb, so if that is too much, the views from the walk around the bottom of the tower are also lovely and far reaching. Lots and lots of green space. A play park nearby. All away from traffic so quite... More

It is a bit of a climb through parkland up to the Tower. There is a lot of wild life in the park especially grey squirrels which are very tame. Once you have climbed up the staircase to the first level you have panoramic views across the city of Bristol and surrounding countryside. You can then climb up the narrow... More
