The Clifton Observatory Reviews & Ratings
Had some time on my hands today and was in Bristol close to the bridge, took walk up to the observatory. £4 entry fee to go up tower and down the cave. Well worth it.
The Giants Cave is very exciting but also a little claustrophobic. Very much enjoyed our visit. Lovely views when the weather is nice.
Excellent place to view the suspension bridge and River Avon. You can enter the observatory £2.50 and go down through the caves - 130 steps and come out at the side of the cliff onto a balcony. The outer bit is open grid so you can see right down. Slightly nerving but it's strong and steady. Pay £2.50 and climb to the top of the observatory for a obscura camera, but this was out of order today due to it being wet and overcast.
We visited the Observatory but didn't go in as it was such a wonderful day!. There were some construction works being carried out when we were there. Great position to view the Clifton bridge.
Lots if information inside about the observatory. The cave had very steep stairs going down and a bit slippery. A brave experience for some.
