Cabot Tower, the century-old 32m high tower that sits at the top of Brandon Hill offering panoramic views of the city, reopened to the public on 16 August 2011, after four years.
It was shut in 2007 after cracks appeared in the tower. According to investigators, the supporting ironwork had badly corroded which had in turn affected the brickwork. There was also found to be a lack of structural metal ties.
Vital work to make it safe has now been completed, and visitors can once again make the rewarding trip tp climb the spiral staircase inside Cabot Tower in order to enjoy the panoramic views of the city of Bristol and its Harbourside.
Cabot Tower, set in the gorgeous parkland of Brandon Hill near Park Street in the West End, is a 105ft tower built in 1897 to commemorate John Cabot's famous voyage from Bristol and the continent of North America four hundred years earlier.
Cabot Tower was designed by the Bristol architect William Venn Gough and paid for by public subscription. The tower is built from red sandstone covered with cream Bath stone.
