It is worth the climb! Two viewing points and a great view. Not suitable for anyone who suffers with heights or has a problem climbing stairs as it is very narrow (unable to go down on your bum). The park is great as well

Wonderful setting and great views in all directions, Lucky that it was a clear blue sky day. Stairs quite steep and tight when ascending while others descending, but good cooperation by visitors. This is unattended and free, set in park area with amble seating. May...More

If you're new to Bristol and want a bit of history and some amazing views of Bristol then you must go up Cabot tower. Plus the squirrels are mega friendly!

One of Bristol’s gems. Brilliant vantage point to see/photograph most of Bristol. Steep and narrow steps in the tower not recommended for people with poor mobility. Some rather friendly squirrels in the nearby park.

Cabot Tower is within a very nice park, which is great for dog walkers and everyone else (there are lots of squirrels too). You could have nice picnics here or just walk around and visit the tower. It is free to enter and the views...More

My son counted about 109 steps to the top! The steps were steep but the staircase was narrow as it spiralled round. Worth the trek up for the views. We were lucky to be staying at Berkerley Square so was less than 5 min walk...More

I'd definitely recommend walking up the tower for the views of the city. Lots of landmarks can be seen from up there. It doesn't take very long to do as a tourist attraction. It's worth checking opening hours before you go as I think it...More

Can’t believe it’s free to walk up this tower with great panoramic views across bristol and beyond. Bit of peace and tranquillity in an otherwise bustling city. Would highly recommend, especially on a sunny day. Not too busy either.

Difficult to review this. It's a nice tower, and the architecture is worth looking at, but otherwise it's not really outstanding. Worth a visit if you're in Bristol.

Apart from one spiral staircase which makes you get a bit personal with people going in the opposite direction - thought it was great. Mr Whippy available when you get down.

It depends on how fast and fit you are. Probably on average 10 to 15 minutes would be about right but if I was you I wouldn't rush. It's an old building and the steps are not as even as they are in a modern building. It's... More
