We visited Loughborough and decided to visit the Carillon & War Memorial Museum while we were there. The museum is free to enter and you can look around the ground floor of the tower and there is a small gift shop with many items at pocket money prices. To climb to the top it costs £1. Well worth paying to... More

If you have never visited the carillon in Loughborough the summer holiday is a great time to visit! There is a small museum on the ground floor- interesting in this centenary anniversary of the Somme - and then a long climb up the tower seeing all the bells as you go till you reach the top and amazing views ....

The carillon houses both the carillon tower, which was built by local organisations to commemorate those who lost their lives in war, and a museum of local military history. For those who are interested in the history of the area, it is a place that you really must visit! The guides are excellent and knowledgeable, and the displays are arranged... More

A great place to view the sky line of Loughborough along with a good way to keep fit as there are allot of steps to get to the top.

My fiancé & I enjoyed a lovely hour's walk around Queen's Park on a Sunday afternoon, with fabulous views of this most unique tower. At 1pm the tower opened. There is a little museum you can visit for free & it's only £1 to climb to the top of the tower. The bell ringing also started at 1pm and was... More

For only a £1 you can go to the top, so you can't really go wrong. Walking up the narrow spiral staircase can be tiring, but there is a lot of interesting features as you do go up. At the top you get a great view of Loughborough and the surrounding villages. You also get to see the mechanics of... More

Excellent building, architecture and culture! Although loud, it was amazing to see the woman playing the bells using her piano style contraption. The war time exhibits on the other floors where an added bonus.

Very inexpensive to climb the Carilon tower. £1 for adults, free for children. We were lucky enough to visit when the bells were being played - beautiful. Lots of war memorabilia in the museum areas. My son loved handling the guns. The museum volunteers were very friendly and knowledgable. We stayed at the balcony level for 20 minutes just enjoying... More
