Enjoy the best view of Bristol from Cabot Tower


The greatest view of Bristol is like all best things in life, free. Head to Cabot Tower for an unforgettable panorama.

If you’re in the market for something cheap and cheerfully spectacular, head to Brandon Hill, Bristol’s oldest park. It’s a glorious little green off Park Street, one of the best enclaves for independent shops and vintage clothes in the city.

Located just off Park Street in the West End, Brandon Hill contains a delightful pond feature, children’s play area, steep grassy hill sides perfect for rolling down, a nature conservation area, and of course an icon of Bristol's skyline, Cabot Tower. 

Built in 1897 to commemorate John Cabot’s discovery of North America four hundred years prior, the tower is free to climb and has unforgettable panoramic views of the city from the top of its winding steps. For free things to do in Bristol, this is top of the list.
