Cabot Tower, Bristol

4.7
The 32 F6m (105 ft) Cabot Tower is an icon of Bristol’s skyline. The tower commemorates the navigator and explorer John Cabot, and was constructed 400 years after he set sail from Bristol to North America. Walk up the spiral staircase (approximately 100 steps) and you'll be rewarded with panoramic views of the city. Be sure to bring along your camera, as the view includes picturesque parkland, the city harbor, and some of Bristol’s most famous attractions. The tower has two viewing platforms, breaking up the climb and providing views for those who can’t make it all the way to the top.

  • A good inclusion to any walk around Bristol, but the gardens were looking a little sad and neglected. It's a bit of a steep climb up the hill, but worth it for great views around Bristol. We didn't go...  more »
  • Stunning views from the top although many steps to reach the top but you have a beautiful panoramic view of Bristol and Clifton bridge  more »

  • Lovely views of Bristol and well kept garden (these photos were taken mid-winter, it's normally a lot greener!) The tower is has just over 100 steps with a little platform part way for a little break if you need one.
  • Lovely place. In the heart of Bristol you can have the best panoramic view, you just need to climb up few steps up to the top and the view is yours. Lots of squirrels 🐿 in the park. Many benches to sit on, relax, have lunch, meet up whatever you fancy.
