Top of the Tower

Quite a climb on an extremely narrow staircase - difficult to pass other people coming down. Well worth the view though - 360 degree views - fabulous.

The tower looks beautiful from the outside but once at the top of the tower the view is incredible. The only issue i found with the tower is the tiny steps and tight narrow passage way, a nightmare for anyone squeezing past to go back down, and terrible if you hate small spaces. Its worth a look at least once!

And its free!. Not for the infirm or those scared of heights - a lot of very narrow spiral stairs take you to a superb view across Bristol, giving you a complete idea of the size of the city and how diverse it, from the wheel at the harbourside, the rolling hills, the uni buildings and the modern sprawl beyond....

I was there when it was a bit cloudy, but the view is still 360 degrees and you can see all of Bristol. Entrance is free, it's just a bit tricky when going up or down as the stairs are quite narrow. The park around it is very calm, although it's just a few blocks away from the lively Park... More

Great view of Bristol but check opening times as we missed out as it was closed on a Friday after lunch.

Not a hard climb for an excellent panorama. Easy to access. Great when it's so central too. Highly recommended.

I don't like heights, but steeled myself to climb to the first level once I realised it was free to enter. The views of Bristol were amazing. I plucked up the courage to go to the top level and surprised myself by not being scared at all! It was a lovely sunny day (which helped with the view) and I... More

We came with a 3 year old and 5 year old. I visited the tower years ago but haven't been back since. It is a lovely and unspoilt building. Of course to get to the top you need to go up the stairs and it's narrow. Full of fun for young kids to go up and down. Fabulous view of... More

Just a short walk off Park Street and well worth the effort, interesting building and history and good views over the city and dock area.

The Cabot Tower offers fantastic views of Bristol, Gloucestershire and Somerset. It is right in the heart of the city and is free. Steep narrow staircase and can get quite busy at weekends.
