Cabot Tower was built between 1896 and 1898 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. 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. It’s been closed since 2007 but is undergoing structural repairs to enable it to be reopen to the public by June 2011
