Such a lovely place ... was recommended by a friend ... Went to top of Tower and was very impressed by the fabulous views. Very well maintained and very cheap to get in. Lots of photo opportunities. Then the Barn cafe was a further treat - reasonably priced home made food, friendly staff, clean comfortable facilities. Free parking, dog friendly... More

It was fine, but it's a tower. On a hill. A bit anti-climactic if I'm being honest. What you see in photos is exactly what you get.

A lovely panorama of the Cotswolds unfolds from the base of the tower, which itself is a pretty architectural structure. There is a small souvenir shop inside the entrance. We declined to pay to go up the tower,feeling the view would be no better than from its base. Also, you cannot get to the very top of the tower.

Let me qualify by saying we arrived after 6 pm and looked merely at the outside. The view from the hill is tremendous. The walk fro the north is about 1000m, from the south about 200m. Signage from the highway poor.

... but do make sure you go on a sunny day to get the best effect. We went early morning after staying overnight in Broadway, and it was still well worth the climb - but we will have to go back to reap the full benefit. Relatively inexpensive entry fee, and quite a lot of interesting history in the exhibits,... More

If you are in the area of Broadway it is worth a visit to the Broadway Tower. We were there on a beautiful day and the views from the top were fantastic. There is a small fee for climbing the tower but it was worth it. The climb is not difficult for the average adult and being at this high... More

Lovely walk up to the tower and rewarded with great views of many counties. Costs £4-5 each to walk to the top, interesting exhibitions on each floor.
