Really interesting history inside mainly focused on the two world wars. The money you pay to get in goes towards its upkeep. I chatted to a really interesting veteran who really knew his stuff and was super friendly. Worth a visit if you're in loughborough.

Although this was closed when we visited, it was lovely to see and to have a walk around the gardens. Well worth a visit, and we'll plan our next one around opening hours for the museum.

I worked in Loughborough for 3 months, during my days off, I always walking around the town to find what interesting surround Loughborough, accidentally I found this spot, weekend a lot people come here to enjoy themselves with friends and families, kids and adults just having fun, I never went to the top of the tower but look fun, the reason I didn’t go there, I enjoy reading in the park then go to the tower, one of my staffs said,is good, nothing to write bad about this place, nice, clean, friendly people and fun

Situated in Queen's Park and built after the First World War as a memorial to the fallen, the Loughborough Carillon Tower was opened on 22 July 1923. There are 47 bells in the Tower, all from the John Taylor Bell Foundry in Loughborough. During the summer the bells are played every Thursday and Sunday from 1pm to 2pm. The Tower is also home to a War Memorial Museum. Unfortunately, the Tower was closed for renovation during our time in Loughborough but it is still worth visiting Queen's Park just to have a look at this unique War Memorial. Nearby, is an armature of Songster, Loughborough's War Horse, who served with the Leicestershire Yeomanry on the battlefields of France.
