We walked up from Broadway, a walk of about 1.5 miles up some quite steep gradients but well worth the effort if you can. Interesting displays about William Morris (the thing that attracted us to the tower in the first place) and the Tower's history....More

Loved visiting! I've never been so interested in the history of a building. This tower has had so many uses and tells so many stories. Also brilliant views not only from the top but also the grounds. Can see it all in 1-2 hours.

Steep climb if walking from Broadway (around 45-60 minutes) but car accessible by road. Can go to top of tower for a fairly robust £5 per head.

Epic views from the top of this tower! Interesting history connected to William Morris, illustrated over the three floors. Red deer to be seen grazing nearby, and a very nice tearoom with a great shop selling a range of lovely and quite unusual gifts.

The tower is amazing, especially from the top. The views of the countryside are the best on the Cotswolds.

We did a circular walk from Broadway involving the steep climb up to the country park. That part was interesting especially for our Canadian friends. The views from the top of the hill was also worth the effort of the climb - although you can...More

Is quite a small place . I think 30 min will be more than enough with the parking and visiting. For the parking you have to pay a charge but you can park on the road for free. The ticket to visit the tower is 5£.

Not into the Tower, but the surrounding countryside would be nice for a well behaved dog on a lead.
