Geoff’s post from a few months back showing the stunning views from the top of the Bath Abbey tower was one of our most popular blog posts, but as a born and bred Bristolian I couldn’t let it go unanswered! So here are a collection of photos from a recent tour I took up Bristol’s iconic Wills Memorial Tower.
Wills Memorial Tower is considered by many to be the last great Neo-Gothic building in the UK, the stone pinnacles and traceries belying the fact that it is not yet even 100 years old. It was designed by Sir George Oatley (who built or worked on many of Bristol’s most significant buildings) and funded by the Wills family of Wills Tobacco, and although the tower is less than 70m high, its commanding position at the top of the Park Street hill gives it arguably the best views in the city.
FCBStudios are privileged to have completed several projects for the University of Bristol, most recently including remodeling the Wills Memorial Library.
