Brandon Hill was a pioneering example of urban conservation, opened by Sir David Attenborough in 1980. Avon Wildlife Trust works with the city council to look after this lovely city space, planting numerous trees and creating a wildlife haven for butterflies, bees and squirrels.
The park is very hilly, so you and your pup will need some energy to climb the hill, but on top are many benches where you can take in the spectacular panoramic views. Brandon Hill is an oasis of calm just a short stroll away from the hustle and bustle of Park Street, so it’s easy to forget your urban surroundings.
There are many activities around the park – children’s playground, workout areas and of course, Cabot tower – Bristol’s best viewing spot, climbing up many steep steps to reach the view 105ft up.
