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.

Day out.

I haven't been here for years so the restaurant was a pleasant surprise. Enjoyed it immensely, and would happily go again.

The tower has an amazing 360• view of the beautiful countryside and rolling hills. The winding stairs are not too difficult to climb up. The gift shop was a little too expensive. Entry tickets are 5 pounds for adults. Worth the trip!

Dear Ann, I have passed your lovely comments on to our team. Our chef, Steve, bakes the scones every morning and comes to work at around 7.30am to make sure there are enough for all. Thanks for the great review from your Broadway Tower Team. PS remember the car parking is also refundable against Tower or Nuclear Bunker Tickets. More

Not aware of the tower until I stayed in Broadway. Lovely walk up from the village through fields full of ewes and their lambs. Beautiful countryside with wonderful views even before we got up the tower that has interesting exhibits. Excellent cafe nearby.

The tower has excellent views across serveral Counties. On the way to the top of the tower you access intermediate floors with displays. At weekends an underground nuclear bunker is open in the summer to the public, the bunker was maned by the Royal Observer Corps and on certain days an ex member is in attendance to give first hand...

Dear Norman, Thank you for all the great feedback. It makes all the difference to us here at the Tower. We also open the Nuclear Bunker on Bank Holiday Mondays and have recently increased our exhibits about the Cold War era on the ROC in the Tower displays. We hope to see you again soon. More

Lovely place to visit, however we did not go up the tower as it was £5 each! To be honest you are so high up at that point the extra could of metres is not worth the money. You can walk around and through the fields with sheep, a lovely way to spend the afternoon.

Did the walk from circular Broadway (make sure you go up via Snowshill rd and down via direct path to Broadway, as the path is far steeper) The Cafe was very nice, with a good range of food and drinks, though not cheap!. The tower is well worth climbing as the views are spectacular and there is plenty to read... More

Dear Emma, Our team really care about your time with us and it is great to hear how much you enjoyed the Morris & Brown cafe and Tower Museum. I agree, the circular walk is best anti-clockwise with the dramatic views en route from the Tower to the village. We hope to see you back soon. More

This place has to be the real highlight of a trip to Broadway or The Cotswolds. Either walk from Broadway village or take the car up. Parking at the tower is £2 which is refunded when spending £5 or over in the fantastic tea rooms. The views from this Cotswold tourist attraction are fantastic.We were told you can see 7... More

We visited in April 2017 and were blown away by the stunning scenery - you can actually see across 16 different counties. The admission to the tower is a reasonable price and the tower exhibitions are interesting but the highlight is the scenery. Well worth a visit.
