An iconic piece of English heritage and important Bristol landmark, the Clifton Observatory, which is located high up on Clifton Downs and above the Avon Gorge, is a must see attraction for tourists and local residents of all ages.

Originally built in 1766, it was used as a mill before it was partially destroyed in 1777 and left derelict until 1828.

Complete with one of only two Camera Obscuras open to the public in England, as well as Ghyston the Giant’s cave, it offers truly breath taking views of the Clifton Suspension Bridge, the city of Bristol and outstanding panoramic views of the Avon Gorge
