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....

The view from the top is great! Don't worry if you don't have a head for heights...you won't feel dizzy at the top, honest. On the way up the museum of local military history is fascinating & so is the carillon keyboard, also seeing the bells at such close quarters. It's a bit of climb, but the museum is on... More

Not only is the park wonderful for families, caged birds area and good cafe too, a childrens play area and large amounts of ducks etc, there is a museum which is also excellent and the Carillon itself if amazing. Inside there is a museum (fascinating) and then (if youre fit enough) a steep climb upstairs to where an organist is... More

Small but interesting war museum, set in small rooms on different levels. Passing the bells, the view over Loughborough at the top is worth going up all the way there ! It is shut over the autumn/winter and will only re-open at Easter. Better to check opening times !
