Step into the home of the Giants
Ghyston’s Cave, sometimes known as the Giants Cave or Foxhole is a natural cave in the limestone face of St Vincent’s Rocks in the Avon Gorge. For centuries it was accessible only from the top of the steep sided Gorge, or by a stiff climb up from the base of the cliff. It can now be approached from the inside of Clifton Observatory.
Giants Cave closed from 3 – 7th June. We apologise for any inconvenience and hope you still Visit the Camera Obscura and Museum.
Explore the World of the Giants
Adventure down into the depths of the Avon gorge and step into the world of the giants. See the home of Bristol’s infamous giants, Goram and Ghyston.
The tunnel leading down to the cave is 200 feet (61m) long and the cave opens out on the cliff face, 250 feet (76m) above the Avon gorge and 90 feet (27m) below the cliff top.
Experience not to Miss
Look out over the Avon Gorge, the giant’s cave offers breath-taking views with a truly unique perspective of the Suspension Bridge.
I really would recommend everyone to visit this place. Surrounding views so amazing, natural beauty. Clifton bridge and the surrounding mountains an experience not to be missed

A great attraction for the family, just by the suspension bridge. Go through the caves and find the lookout across the gorge and see the amazing views!
