“Scenic and relaxing”
Review of Cabot Tower

Cabot Tower
Reviewed 15 June 2014

Cabot Tower is very nice to visit. It is best visit on a nice sunny day. Lots of park land to explore and chill at, great for a picnic. Scenic view of Bristol with many benches to sit along. It is peaceful too. One nice thing to do is to bring a few nuts along with you as their is quite a lot of squirrels that run about and will happily take a nut from you and come up close. I saw these squirrels in Spring. Great photography opportunities. Cabot Tower looks interesting and historic.

I am a Bristolian who knows how much attractions can cost and this place has very personal memories for me. Now the place. Free to go up. Views are amazing. Located on Brandon Hill which can be an oasis of peace in the middle of the city. Easy walks. Great restaurants and coffee shops nearby. Kids can feed the squirrels all year around. It is one place I take all friends visiting Bristol.

Situated in the lovely Brandon Park/Hill, you get great 360degree views over Bristol. There are ALOT of stairs which are quite narrow, so if you have issues with stairs or heights then maybe not for you!

The views from here are spectacular and the vast hilly (at the lower levels fairly gentle in slope) lands are very well maintained. Perfect for picnics. Plenty of pay and display parking spaces available.

An unexpected parkland haven, a stones throw from the hustle and bustle of Park Street (just off City Centre) Cabot Tower (named after John Cabot) is in a public, hilly parkland in Brandon Hill. There are two viewing platforms presenting magnificent views across Bristol, Harbour and beyond.
Surrounded by parkland and nature reserve, squirrels are very tame and will eat from your hand. Its a great spot for picnics and dog walking, but there is a dog free park for children too. Would recommend a visit if you are in Bristol as its central and there are a number of routes leading to it . We visited in good weather which was enjoyable but very busy trying to get passed people on the spiral staircase, (it is a bit of a climb so less than fit and very young children would struggle).
