Directions to Brandon Hill and Cabot Tower

Enjoy the panoramic vista from the top of Brandon Hill and Cabot Tower and take some time to appreciate the conservation area - a haven for wildlife. Brandon Hill is an oasis in the middle of the city. It is a great place to relax and enjoy a picnic (the local squirrels won't say no to a titbit from your lunchbox). If you are feeling energetic make your way up the hill and climb the spiral staircase of the 105-foot high tower. It was built between 1896 and 1898 in commemoration to John Cabot who discovered Newfoundland. Your climb will be rewarded by wonderful panoramic views.

Opening times: Cabot Tower is open everyday, apart from Christmas Day and New Year's Day, from early morning until dusk - approximately from 8am to 7pm during the summer and from 8am to 4pm during the winter.

Entrance to the tower is free
