Just awesome views of the famous bridge, plus an Observatory - this is a great spot to lean back and take in Bristol from on high. I really think it's a must on a visit to the city.

Made up of the Giant's Cave and the famous Camera Obscura, this observatory sits beautifully at the top of Observatory Hill and is the best way to get fantastic views of Leigh Woods, Clifton Suspension Bridge and Avon Gorge.
