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. « less

Well worth either the walk or the drive to see this attraction. Note the nuclear bunker only open at weekends

A shortish walk from Broadway ... Of course it is uphill so if you don't fancy the uphill walk you can drive to the top. Lovely views places to have a picnic and a cafe as well.

This is the first time I've eaten at the Broadway Tower and it was a casual lunch with a friend. I was very impressed with the melted cheese forcaccia - a simple dish which so often is disappointing. This was properly full of cheese and delicious - I will return. The tower itself is interesting and worth a visit, views... More

This is not a place to go out of your way to visit. The surrounding area is beautiful, just like it is for miles around. Best part of our visit was the tasty scones, jam, and tea in the lovely nearby shop.

It's an odd place, a Victorian folly with a history that includes William Morris, and it has a it's own nuclear bunker too. Yes, you can walk up here from Broadway itself but I wouldn't recommend it. Instead drive here - the parking is good and there is a café too. We climbed floor by floor pausing to read the... More

A superb view will reward your climb up to this tower. Broadway is a lovely place but it is not until you come up to this, the second highest point in the Cotswolds, and see the glorious 65 feet James Wyatt designed folly. I can’t remember the exact point my wife and I visited but the weather wasn’t as good... More

Walk the Cotswold up to the Tower for a great view shared by founders of the Pre-Raphalite Brotherhood.
