A must do. Tour of this stunning building lasts just over an hour. Gary, our guide, was entertaining and informative. The views from the top of the tower are incredible; lots of steps but totally worth it!

Really enjoyable tour of the Wills Tower hosted by two very informative and entertaining guides. Amazing views from the top all across Bristol and beyond. The Great Hall is beautiful and we were fortunate to hear the choir practising for a memorial service later that day. Well worth doing. A highlight of our trip.

Am amazing tour… we booked this tour on impulse.. but it was truly excellent. You got up close to the bell and a wonderful history tour of the building, tower, library.. the tour guides were fabulous, interesting, funny, engaging and knew their stuff… and to top it off all the fees for the tour go to charity.. £5 I would have paid double and still been very happy. Thank you team !

Wills Memorial Building is an incredible and beautiful building located on the edge of the Bristol University campus very close to the center of Bristol. Wills Memorial is a gorgeous building in the Gothic revival style. It can be hard to tell from the outside when surrounded by many tall buildings and hills but Wills Memorial is massive inside and out. You can see in pictures that, I'm not sure how tall the ceiling in the entry hall is but, it's TALL.

The building is filled with history of those involved in its construction, in the founding of the University of Bristol, and more. Did you know that Blackbeard the pirate was a Bristolian? The building is also still in use by a number of disciplines and classes at Bristol Uni, especially the law school.

After some equivalent of 18-20 flights of stairs and 215 feet up an incredibly tight and steep tower, you come out to 360 degree views of the city of Bristol. You can see for miles and miles, all the way to Wales on a clear day according to our guide Gary.

After that the tour includes the historic library in all its silence, the old Bristol University council chambers adorned in heraldry including that of Lord Sainsbury (for whom the grocery store is named) and when not recovering from a massive storm it would also include a lengthier look at the massive 9 ton bell.

It's welcoming that the tour didn't shy away from the complicated history of those involved in the founding of the university. It's important to hear about the good and the bad in history because in that truth is a clear understanding of where we've been and where we're going.

The only downside? Because of its listed status, historicity, of Wills the building is not accessible to those who can climb many floors of sometimes very tight steep stairs.

While the steep climb early in the day wasn't something I'd planned for, I was glad to have visited Wills. I learned a lot and got to see an astonishing view of Bristol.

A beautiful building that is the centrepiece of Park street. It is used today by the University as a library and for graduation ceremonies, among other things. I took a guided tour to the top, which was well worth the £5 I paid for a two hour tour. We learnt about the history of the building and got to see the massive bell strike 12 times at midday. Afterwards, we climbed the narrow staircase all the way to the top to see the stunning views of Bristol.

Gary and his team were amazing!

Such knowledgeable and friendly guides, and they really engaged with the children (8 & 10) and kept them interested the whole time.

1.5 hours for only £5 per person is such great value for what you get.

This was really fascinating! We were led by 3 very helpful guides who were able to answer all curious questions. The view from the top of the tower is just incredible and being in the bell room with big George was quite an amazing experience. I’ve lived in Bristol for 12 years and can’t believe I hadn’t done this sooner - I learned a lot!
Wills building is at the top of park street which has some great shops and cafes if you’re looking for something to do before or after the tour.

Fantastic tour of the Wills Memorial Building. Tour guides were really friendly and knowledgeable. The tour takes you all around the building - we are students at Bristol and we hadn’t seen half the things they showed us! We had a really great time and learnt lots.
