Interesting small tower.Once you get to the top using the twisty steep stairs there is the potential to see for miles across the Vale of Evesham.

Considered a "folly"...not a true part of a castle...but still has a fascinating history that is well chronicled on each level as you climb the tower. Also has a charming coffee shop/restaurant and gift shop.

This is the kind of vista that brings people to the Cotswolds. It is spectacular and stunning. The tower itself has a somewhat dubious history. Apparently it was build by a wealthy man who wanted his servants to be able to see when he was...More

Started our Cotswold Way hike at chipping Campden and reached Broadway Tower in about an hour and half, after a reasonably flatish ( few small rises and dips) hike through a variety of woodlands, fields and small sections of roadway. The Tower is both impressive...More

It is a short walk to the Cotswold Way from the village and then an easy route to follow all the way. We went on a bright sunny autumnal day so we could appreciate the wonderful views and the stunning colours. There is a good...More

This observation tower "folly" provides a spectacular view across the Cotswolds, but it's not worth a detour to get her. There are plenty of beautiful long-view sights in the Cotswolds, and the 5-pound charge to climb 55 steps to the top of this tower, is...More

On a windy day I visited the Tower and had a magnificent view of the surrounding Counties from the highest point in Worcestershire, The access is via a spiral staircase which would not be to everyone's ability. The inter floors have very interesting displays.

We visited this viewpoint after a recommendation from the tourist information centre in Chipping Camden. We were in transit from the Cotswolds to near Ludlow so a timely visit was needed. Our morning visit was dry but a little misty in the far distant. You...More

We walked from the town and up to the tower. It's a lovely walk through the fields and the hills makes it a decent exercise! The view you get from the top is stunning. Recommend taking the route down through Middle Hill to Snowhill rd.

We walked from the top of Broadway main street (Parking above the turning circle on the roadside which the traffic warden recommended as free parking spot!) We were lucky with the weather which meant that this was not just a pleasant walk but wonderful views...More

I don't recall this being a circular walk. We were on the Cotswold Way walking from Chipping Campden toward Bath. Beautiful country and nice walk.
