What people are saying:

The Cabot tower in Bristol was built in 1890 to commemorate the 400th anniversary of Giovanni Cabot's voyage from Bristol to present-day Canada. The tower is 32 meters high and is constructed of red sandstone and cream bath stone. It includes a spiral staircase and two viewing platforms, where you can overlook the entire city of Bristol. This tower can be climbed to the top for free, but the stairs are so narrow that no one can go up and down at the same time. Fortunately, there are very few tourists here, otherwise it would be embarrassing for someone to go up and down.

    Nice climb to the top, but the tower was temporarily closed.

    It is half a mile from the Cathedral, but you have to climb Brandon Hill. It was temporarily closed due to COVID-19. At least I enjoyed the environment.

    Worth the climb

    Cabot Tower even though currently covid closed is well worth a visit and a climb up the hill to see it, nice mini waterfall at the base, shame currently unable to visit the top.
