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.

Perched on a hill a short distance from the charming village of Broadway in the Cotswolds sits a a Tower which is in itself engaging and from and around which you get stunning views of the surrounding countryside. The view is free and although the Tower is not, it is probably worth paying the modest entrance fee to get an... More

Beautiful situation - on a clear day! An interesting history inside the tower. Delicious home made food in the nearby country cafe with a wonderful view to enjoy whilst relaxing.

Stunning views around and up the tower, lots of amazing photos gained on our visit. The cafe is worth a visit, the food is delicious. We had lunch while we was there, panini's and chocolate cream egg brownie's 😍 the best lunch I've had in ages.

The views from Broadway Tower are amazing. You can see 16 counties from the viewing platform at the top. The cafe was also excellent.

This is a 'folly' tower built in the 18th century and stands at the top of a hill overlooking Broadway and the surrounding countryside. A great place to walk to and climb up with amazing views from the top. There is a small gift shop on the ground floor with a very friendly lady staffing it when we visited it.... More

We came here as our first stop off during our 2 day whistle stop tour of the area. You can pay to park in the pay and display car park and if you buy something in the cafe (£5 plus spend) you can get your car park fee back. Some people just parked out on the road. We paid our... More

The view from the tower was great. The entrance fee was quite a lot for not very much to do. It did not take us long to go up the tower.

A truly lovely walk from Broadway village around a two hour round trip or car park directly situated next to the tower. You really feel like Rapunzel as you climb the winding staircase to the top. Amazing views in all directions. An interesting gift shop at the ground floor and a selection of guided tours available. Go to the tourist... More
