Meet ‘Great George’ the big bell, enjoy the stunning views of Bristol from the tower, view the gallery of the Great Hall.

The view from the top of Wills Tower, some 68 metres above Park Street, is unparalleled and tour guides give a unique insight into the history of the building, which was opened by King George V and Queen Mary in 1925 before being badly damaged during the Blitz in 1940.
