Built in the Georgian era, Clifton Observatory boasts incredible views overlooking Bristol, Clifton Suspension Bridge, and the Avon Gorge. Our recently renovated William West room combines historic charm with modern amenities: including a stage; DJ booth with PA and AV system; a gorgeous sparkling chandelier; and a fully licensed bar. Our 360 Rooftop Terrace offers gorgeous views of the Bristol skyline and also has a licensed bar. The terrace is partially covered by a marquee so that in the case of bad weather, you and your guests can still enjoy the view. The Observatory Tower leads guests on a historical journey up three flights of stairs to the Camera Obscura, which is an incredible feat of Victorian engineering. The tower is the ideal location for an intimate wedding ceremony. The viewing balcony of the Giant’s Cave offers a unique vantage point of the Clifton Suspension Bridge and Avon Gorge. It's the perfect place for a dramatic photoshoot or unique wedding service. Our friendly and experienced team are eager to help you craft your perfect day.
