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.

The tower is spectacular! Good carpark with ticket refunded in the cafe. Good food and interesting gift shop. Short walk to the tower. 71 steps to the top with rooms to visit on the way up. Lots of information and things to look at. See 15 counties from the roof so take binoculars. Nice walks around the area and a... More

It is a must to visit the Tower if you are in Broadway. If the weather is clear, you will have great pictures. The building is interesting and it is worth to climb all the stairs to the top. You can appreciate the Cotswolds as far as your eyes can see.

It's all about location - the views from the top of the tower on a good day are stunning - and still impressive on normal 'English' day. Interesting informative exhibitions at all levels. Quality tea room nearby - very good food. Possible to drive to tea room and short walk to tower, otherwise steady walk [uphill] from Broadway is around... More

Superb views. Interesting small exhibitions on William Morris and the Observer Corps. Would like to return to see the Cold War bunker

Walked for Broadway up to the tower and we thoroughly enjoyed it. The exhibitions on the different levels within the tower were very informative and the views from the top are breathtaking. I can appreciate the need to charge for entry, but it might be useful to explain somewhere prominent the cost on the upkeep of the tower and people... More

We did a round walk to the Tower from Broadway, where we were staying ... uphill there and downhill (a different way) back! There are fantastic views of the countryside from the hill, and the short additional climb up the Tower (and admission fee) was well worthwhile too. Unlike many towers we've been up, there are two staircases, allowing for... More

We have lived in broadway for 20 years and had never been up the tower. My Spanish in laws came over so we all decided to see what it was like. It's reasonably priced and has several levels. The William Morris decoration is inspiring. The views from the top are amazing and on a clear day you can see for... More

Really interesting part of history and an important part of Broadway. Not far from town in the beautiful Cotswold hills.
