Visit: Broadway Tower, Middle Hill Parking: what3words ///pebble.crouches.galaxies, Broadway WR12 7LB England
Broadway Tower was the brainchild of the great 18th Century landscape designer, Capability Brown. His vision was carried out for George William 6th Earl of Coventry with the help of renowned architect James Wyatt and completed in 1798. The location for the Tower was wisely chosen, a dramatic outlook on a pre-medieval trading route and beacon hill.
Standing in its dramatic location at 65 feet high Broadway Tower has some of the best views in England. Did you know we can see up to 16 counties from the top of the Tower? And we’re on the Cotswold Way – so it’s a paradise for cyclists, walkers and wildlife lovers. Perfect for a family day out.
Broadway Tower houses exhibitions on three floors about the history of its occupants and colourful past. Enjoy a leisurely climb of the Tower in manageable stages. See examples of the work of William Morris and understand the link between the Tower and the Arts and Crafts movement before ascending to an exhibition of the Royal Observer Corps and learn how the post situated 70 yards from the Tower was used in World War Two and the Cold War. Crown your visit with breath-taking views from the roof platform.
