A unique Capability Brown Folly Tower open to visitors wanting to experience great English heritage in an inspiring location. Graphic displays on three floors, roof viewing platform and Tower Shop are a must for Cotswold visits.Broadway Tower is one of England's outstanding viewpoints and at 1024 feet (312m) above sea level, it is the second highest point on the Cotswold escarpment. Unrivalled views survey an expanse of a 62 mile radius and as many as 16 Counties. Conveniently located on the Cotswold Way, Broadway Tower is the perfect place to start your walk, be it a short circuit or hike. There is ample car parking for patrons of Broadway Tower and refreshments await to reward the completed walk.

Walked to the top from the town, luckily it was a beautiful sunny day. I'm very overweight but did manage to walk up despite a few rest stops. Once at the top of the Tower the view was breathtaking! You could see for miles! It...More

Three floors of fascinating exhibits collected by eccentrics but beware the winding stairs, at the top you are further rewarded by the views across the countryside, on a clear day you may even see the Welsh mountains I was informed.

Even though it was a cloudy, grey day, the view of the countryside is spectacular. You can see the rolling fields for miles around. There is a wonderful display of William Morris memorabilia, samples of his fabrics and wallpaper. Also, a nice gift shop.

Stunning views from the tower, landscape, sheep and deers around the area. The tower itself is an attractive structure. Paid £2 for car park in a weekday in August which you can redeem from entry fee to tower. Attracted me more than Broadway village ,...More

I have been here a number of times now this time took my sister. Excellent view even without climbing the tower. Cafe very pleasant with reasonably priced food. If you have the opportunity and not claustrophobic the WWII nuclear bunker is interesting.

Thanks so much Ian, the bunker is open Saturdays and Sundays 10-5pm (last tour starts at 4pm) so perhaps a breakfast at Morris & Brown from 9am followed by a Nuclear Bunker tour would be fun for interested visitors. See you back soon.

Hi Babs, thank you for the lovely review. We are glad you had a great day and even managed push chairs on the Cotswold Way. Well done, that is amazing. We hope to see you back soon.

Dear Adele, Thank you so much for your visit and your lovely feedback. Like you we are passionate about the Cotswolds, their extraordinary beauty and history. I am glad we were able to share some of the Tower's story with you.

Went there although we'd been warned by our Cotswolds guidebook that the Tower would only be worth visiting for its views but not for all the displays that have been installed. (For what reason exactly?) Well, they were so right. We coughed up the 5...More

Dear Michael, I am so disappointed to hear you did not enjoy your visit. I suppose the amount of time spent at the Tower does depend on the detail you want to take in from the historical displays, so it is entirely possible to only...More

Set on a hill overlooking the Vale of Evesham stands what looks like a mediaeval tower surrounded by beautiful grounds. The tower itself is not so intimidating that it would be fine for families. In fact, when we visited, it seemed like a magnet for...More

Is quite a small place . I think 30 min will be more than enough with the parking and visiting. For the parking you have to pay a charge but you can park on the road for free. The ticket to visit the tower is 5£.

Not into the Tower, but the surrounding countryside would be nice for a well behaved dog on a lead.
