Loughborough's Carillon Tower can be seen from around the town. A real landmark. It's a war memorial set in Loughborough's Queens Park. It's blue green top, caused by the copper that it's made from, has dripped down the tower's walls and turned the paving stones below the same colour. At certain times of the year you can go up the...

Beautiful building and excellent views. Very interesting rooms and artifacts to view also. Well worth the £1 per adult to visit the top.

I lovely building filled with lots of history. Was rather steep with a young child so couldn't fully enjoy the experience. The bells were spectacular and the view from the top was .A better idea with just me and my partner. Lots of military memories

You have a nice view from the top of the tower but to get there you have to go through a war glorifying museum.

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.

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
