Cabot's Tower is a tower in Bristol, England, situated in the public park on Brandon Hill, between the city centre, Clifton and Hotwells. It was built in 1897 in memory of John Cabot, 400 years after he set sail in the Matthew from Bristol and landed in what was later to become Canada.

The architect was William Venn Gough. It consists of a spiral staircase and two viewing platforms which overlook the city, the higher of which is approximately 334 feet (102 m) above sea level. The tower used to be open to the public. It is now closed due to construction works. The tower gives its name to the area and Council ward of Cabot.

When we visited in September 2008 the tower was closed and sealed off to visitors, apparently unsafe. No chance of the promised spectacular views of the city from the top.
