The Cabot Park is amazing, and the steps up to the Tower may get your heart racing, but don't worry, there's only about 100 steps up into the tower! On top of that, you'll have to go up a staircase whilst others are coming down,...More

The sight from above is astounding, thanks also to the magnificent weather we had. The staircase is quite narrow so you have to be aware of other people coming in the opposite direction. The price (free!) makes for a mandatory visit if you are in...More

Well worth the walk up to see the views of the city, never knew it was so hilly in Bristol! Very close to the city centre so an easy walk to get to, just up from the university.

Came here with my boyfriend and spent ages in the tower just looking over the city. There's a little garden area around it and a hill side that you can sit along to look over Hotwells area. Cute little date idea

Cabot Tower was another lovely surprise as we were wandering around Bristol. Perched at the top of a hill and free to enter, you're rewarded after the climb with panoramic views of the city. It's in a lovely location in a park close to Harbourside...More

Great views of Bristol and good exercise at the same time, what's not to love? The park (Brandon Hill) is also a great place for a picnic and walk.

We walked to it from the centre of Bristol. It’s free to get in. Lots of fairly steep steps to the top of the tower but so worth it for the amazing views. Enjoy.

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
