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.

It is one of a handful in the country, The first one completed after the great war and has a peel of Loughborough bells in it. I do wish they would have the museum open more often but if the door is open go in it is worth it.

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
