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.
