Relaxing visit

This is one of the best places in Bristol to walk around and just forget about being in a city. Very well kept, and full of wildlife. A very relaxing place.

The park is set on a steep hillside with winding paths, plenty of mature trees and landscaped garden and water feature area just below the Cabot Tower.

I work just over the road from Barndon hill so walk through it quite often. It's a popular tourist spot and is always busy during summer for picnics and the like. would recommend as somewhere pretty slightly off the beaten track. Don't miss Cabot Tower, it stands out a tad :)

Very nice walk out when the sun is out (or not!) Very windy though as the hill is exposed from its surroundings, make sure you make the climb up to Cabot Tower! it'll be worth it!

A lovely stroll - don't miss the tower! Great park to amble around, good views on the ground or from the tower (free entry, lots of winding steps).
