Visited on a wet sunday afternoon. The carillon was being played which was an added bonus. It was a very impressive sight and worthy memorial to the fallen in WW1.

I recently decided to bring my girlfriend down to Loughborough to show her what the small university town I live in is like. The first day showing her around I came across the carillon which, at first I must admit, I thought was a simple memorial tower with access to the top of the tower for a view. I am... More

We visited the Carillon on a Thursday when we knew the bells would be ringing and were not disappointed. We sat in Queens Park for a while and listened to the bells and then paid £1 each for the privilege of climbing 138 steps to the Carillon room were we watched Caroline the Carilloner play. We then climbed more steps... More

What else can you do for a £1? It is well worth a look and the views alone are worth it. There are two rooms to stop in and read about some local history.

Bit of a climb up but very worth it. As it was built as a war memorial WW 1, it has museums on different levels, useful as a resting spot. Past the bells, all made locally, up to the balcony and see the view all around Loughborough. Museums are free but for a small fee you can go up to... More

Superb tribute to the fallen from WWs, we took our little girl and it's a 30 min - 1 hour visit with a big walk up to the top, she really enjoyed it. The special bell playing keyboard was amazing to see and the war museum was intimate and moving, happy to recommend a visit!

Walked past many a time but for the first time ever went in this week. Bit of a climb to the top for those not brilliant on their feet but fabulous remembrance museum on various levels as you go up. Good views at the top and the Carillon itself is fascinating. Well worth taking time out to see.
