This is a truly spectacular, grand & imposing University building! It towers over the street with its huge Gothic architecture. We’d actually no idea what it was as we approached it, assumed it was a church until we got closer.

Possibly the most significant building at the University of Bristol, the Wills Memorial Tower, was built in the first quarter of the 20th century. It is an icon of the Gothic revival style in England. The entrance for tourists is not always allowed, but it is worth taking a photo of the facade. It is adjacent to the Bristol Museum and Art Gallery.

Wills Memorial building tour would have been nice to do but not available while we visited, but to see the impressive building that is at the top of Park st was well worth the walk, marvellous architecture.

Look out for the people stood out front booking tours of the bell tower - well worth all the steps for great views across Bristol, and to be in the bell room when that huge bell is struck (every quarter hour). the tour was about £5 each, but had to be booked a few weeks in advance.

My boyfriend got us tickets for the evening tour at Wills Memorial last weekend. It made for a really fun date night, as we went for dinner afterwards on Park Street. The Tour Guides were really knowledgeable and I learned loads that I hadn't known about the building, it's history and even the famous faces that have come through the University. Seeing (and hearing) Great George, the bell, was really good and the view from the top was beautiful. The building is impressive inside and out and I really enjoyed the whole experience. I highly recommend it!
