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.

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

If they charged 2.00 each that would be plenty also they could have much nicer things in the gift shop Nice tower but not worth the 4.80 each especially when the bunker is not open as well. Tra rooms were great

Would recommend the walk rather than the tower which is a little bit pricey for what you get. Still: a folly for a destination after climbing a steepish path will suit some - and the views of the Malverns and other landmarks are stupendous . . .

Even if you are parked in the misty car park, the tower may be in full sunshine as it was today. Excellent cappuccino, smooth with a good creamy froth - a rarity in England but commonplace in Italy or Australia! Car park charges refunded and dog welcomed.

Well positioned on top of a hill some 10 minutes drive out of Broadway, with views over 4 counties with what look like a series of good country walks. In addition a very stylish Cafe with good value food and drinks in a converted barn/farmhouse

If you want to go somewhere curiously fun and full of whimsy ... A little trip here is perfect ! This quaint, folly castle provides tremendous views of the surrounding Cotswold countryside. Many people who have reviewed this place have said the £5 entry fee was overpriced , I completely disagree, it was worth every penny to be allowed to... More
