|As with many English towns and cities, Bristol claims, like Rome of old, to be built on seven hills. One could make out a case for this, but anyone walking or cycling in Bristol will assure you that the city seems to be built on a lot more than that!|
The highest points, if one includes the immediate suburbs, are little over 300 ft above sea level. The oldest part of Bristol, being built on the banks of a tidal river, is as near sea level as makes no difference. So apart from following the river valleys the only way out of Bristol is Up.
This section shows some of the views from the higher points of Bristol and its suburbs. Enjoy.
