We walked from Broadway up the hill to the Tower. The scenery on the walk was lovely, through fields with sheep and over hills. It was quite a warm day and the walk turned out to be longer than we expected. But wow, once we arrived, all was forgotten. The views from the hill around the tower are spectacular, climbing...

Well worth the visit for a small fee, see the folly. If you get a clear day, the views are spectacular for miles around. There is a wonderful cafe near the car park. Lots of outdoor and indoor seating. Lots of choice of food, including gluten free. Your car parking fee is rebated on purchases from the shop or Broadway... More

Super day out and the restaurant is very good, and reasonably priced.splendid walks and the underground Nuclear Bunker gives an insight into the Cold War, not for the Claustrophobic.

The tower is well worth a visit (didn't bother going up as you can see all the landscape from the hill). The cafe is a bit ordinary (and overpriced) - coffee was tepid and delivered about half full (in fairness the lady apologised and gave me a fresh cup when I complained). Scones were average at best (dry) and jam... More

Not knowing the area we drove to the nearby cafe for a coffee before ascending the tower, I think we cheated a bit and should have walked up from Broadway! I was interested to read about the history of the tower as we climbed up each level. Although there were a lot of walkers about very few joined us on... More

We were on a walking tour of the Cotswolds and it was recommended that we go to Broadway Tower. Make certain you go up to the top of the tower and visit each landing. They have great exhibits on each level. If it's a clear day, the view from the top of the tower are amazing! You can see to... More

The tower is not far from Broadway village. Lovely walk and the views once we got there were breathtaking. Nice place to eat as well. Would come here again.

When reaching the hill top with the follie of the broadway tower one can get a cup of coffee at the cafe. Nice options for lunch, a good selection of cakes and a cappuccino machine. We loved the soup, not too keen on the coffee though. But probably is what the Britons like: it's a lot and it's piping hot!... More
