Always enjoy coming to Brandon Hill. I tend to go on walks in the early morning, sometimes at sunrise in the winter months, and it is generally very quiet, clean, and peaceful. The tower is not usually open when I go, but you don't have...More

Having entered the park using the steps at the bottom of Jacobs Wells Road we enjoyed the ascent through the woods which took us to the highest point in Bristol where we savoured the panoramic views. We left the park by descending through Berkely Square.

Great place to walk dogs and see Bristol from afar. Climb the 100+ steps of Cabot tower for a real leg workout and you'll be rewarded with a fantastic view across the city to the floating harbour and beyond.

The park is very well kept beautiful green spaces and provides a hideaway from the maddening city. Take care with the squirrels they're not shy here.
