This is a free activity and there are a few steps to climb but good views over Bristol. It is a 10 min walk from the city centre.

Ok park with this great tower that's free. You need a head for heights and the rewarding views are fantastic. Well wort a visit. Parking nearby can be awkward.

Lovely little park that sees many locals and visitors alike enjoying the great views over Bristol. The tower is a little tight on the way up, but once at the top you have some incredible views. A lovely place to visit, even if you don't...More

Quite a steep climb through a small park to reach the tower which you can climb and take in the views. Free entry

A great place for panoramic shots of Bristol. Went on a clear and sunny day and were glad we battled the two narrow staircase. Try not to go up with a big backpack, especially if you plan to go right to the top.

For one of the best views in Bristol head to Cabot tower; it's simply stunning! It's a bit of an adventure climbing the narrow steps* to the 360 degree viewing platform, but the wonderful views instantly reward your efforts. Best of all- it's free (well...More

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
