If you have an interest in WW1 & WW2 memorabilia then this is definitely worth a look. The volunteer guides are very knowledgeable about the artefacts. If you have the legs for it, then walk to the top for a great view over Loughborough.

Great History place to visit. Seeing as the Carillon is in my home town it’s wildly know land mark for Loughborough. Well worth a visit.

Great little museum and observation for the carillon bells. Worth goin to watch the carillonneur play and climb up the tower. Also worth going on Remembrance Sunday to the service - huge numbers still gather for a moving service as poppies fall from the tower.
