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 !

We spent hours in Queens Park and even went to the top of the Carillon. Amazing views from the top. Interesting museum and all free.

As a 21 year old I found it extremely boring, I won't lie. However, for people who are interested in this sort of thing it may not be- and it is something for families to take their children to do for just a pound each.

This shopping centre has all the amenities I believe. Very easy access especially for disabled users. All the shops you could wish for and staff were so helpful. A very pleasurable visit

Go and see this. Only a £1 to get in. The Carillon recitals are fabulous as are the views from the top of the tower. Also combines an interesting little military museum.

This is steeped in history, it's a grade 2 listed building, & holds 47 bells, all cast at John Taylors Bell Foundry in Loughborough...... I suggest you make your visit to Loughborough, to visit the bell foundry, & also to come & listen to a recital at the carillon, enjoy Queens Park......Loughborough has lots of history..

If you cannot get to the foundry at Whitchapel, London, then this is the next best thing. The Loughborough Carillion is comprised of bells made at the foundry.

Opened at one o'clock ............ The ground floor is packed with military memorabilia of... More
