I have been coming to Loughborough since 1978 and lived here between 1984 and 1987 when my son was born too. I have never been in Queen's Park before although I have known about the Carillion Tower WW1 War Memorial. This is 10 acres a excellently kept and immaculate parkland which was resplendent in the early May sunshine with the... More

Built after the First World war as a memorial to those who had died in the town and filled with 44 bells cast at the town's bell foundry it's well worth a visit. The view from the top is good, enabling people to see all over the Charnwood Forest and across towards Nottingham and Derby. Stairs only to climb however.... More

I visited the Carillon military museum on a Wednesday afternoon. This is housed in the carillon which was built as a war memorial. The museum itself is fascinating and filled to the brim with thousands of military items from guns to rations. I spent a good two hours there and had a guided tour by one of the knowledgeable volunteers.... More

I would recommend the carillon as a must see attraction. After seeing it on tv, i decided to take a look around. The museums are very interesting and the views from the top are amazing. The instrument and the bell tower worthy of a look at too.

The Carillon is a unique small but interesting military museum / war memorial located in the pleasant Queens Park. The exhibitions are set across several floors accessible by a good number of steps so not suitable for those with limited mobility.The Carillon / bell tower also offers excellent views of Loughborough and the surrounding area. Run by volunteers the admission... More

Loved our visit here, we climbed to the top where we enjoyed fabulous views over Loughborough and stopped on all floors to enjoy the various exhibits and we're lucky enough to sit at the carillon itself for photos......well worth a visit

You may ask what this site is - well it is a masonary tower that holds bells. You can go to the top when its open (look at the web site for opening times) . Some times you are even allowed to play the bells. Within the tower is a small museum dedicated to the Leicestershire Yeomanry. This site is... More

This place was a massive hit with our toddler, who climbed all of the steps to get to the top, but then was terrified by the incredibly loud bells! We went on a Thursday afternoon, when the concert was happening - you can walk through the room with the bells and sit and watch the carillonneur. There is a surprising... More

Our Father-in-law wanted to visit and we're glad he did as we really enjoyed our visit. We did find parking a bit of a pain as we followed the sign and ended up in the more expensive Leisure centre car park but then moved across to the one right next to the park which is much closer and cheaper too....
