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.

This was a lovely attraction. The view was amazing, and the tea shop was lovely too. I really enjoyed wandering around the site and looking out over the Cotswolds. Free parking (if you buy something in the shop) is also a great idea! Would recommend to any visitors to the area.

This is a "folly" tower built for no apparent reason and then finding purpose as it went along. But worth a visit nonetheless for the drive up and the scenery from.

We were very lucky with the fabulous weather. We walked from Broadway. You can only do this if you are fit. Incredible scenery and so peaceful.

We visited here over the Easter break. It was an interesting place to visit. There is a nice tea room close by and it was lovely to sit outside as it was a sunny day. The price to visit the tower was reasonable.

What a beautiful place- definitely worth a trip to the top of the tower on a clear day the views are stunning. My partner went on a tour of the nuclear bunker (I chickened out) which he enjoyed, however I would maybe comment that the price of both is a little high.

Was cloudy when we visited in Feb 2015, so the views were obstructed. Would imagine a wonderful view of the country on a clear day. Very interesting history of the RAF observers during WWII and subsequent time during the Cold War - an interesting stop for history buffs. Amazing cafe and little gift shop. A good stop as part of...

Fun for all and take the camera you can see across many counties on a clear day. Great for dogs/ kids or to antic walks.

I thought the walk in the countryside was the best part of the Tower. I wouldn't go in the next time, but I just had to see what it looked like in there this first time. Small and not furnished, but interesting displays.

We visited Broadway Tower today for a short walk and to admire the spectacular views. We visited the tower gift shop and were invited on an organised hourly tour of the War Memorial and ROC nuclear bunker. James and Neil were our tour guides they were both very knowledgeable and passionate about our history post WW2 and the Cold War... More
