Strolled across from the fish picnic spot. A pleasant stroll in slightly muddy fields due to the wet conditions. Sadly the view was poor, but would have been great on another day. Misty conditions limited the view across the Cotswolds countryside. The cafe was elcoming...More

Worth a trip up the tower for extensive views even in dull weather. Must be even better on a really clear day. Easy to access by road. Walking up from Broadway is steep and muddy in winter ... good for fit hikers. Otherwise good families...More

I’ve been here several times. Every time there is something new to spot. The tower provides a great historical experience and insight to another world. The land expands over views of Broadway. Deer and sheep roam the fields. Take a picnic or use the cafe....More

This is a quirky little tower set on a hill with fine views over several counties. Go on a clear day and admire the views. There are interesting displays in the tower. There is also a cold war ‘secret bunker’ you can visit but that...More

A charming old monument very peaceful to wander and admire its historical architecture and panoramic views from up here. Didn't stay long on our first visit as pushed for time, but intend to return and fully explore.

It's annoying to read of people who are too mean to pay a fiver to go round this place. I'm sure they are happy to buy themselves a drink in the pub after for the same price. This is a wonderful English folly looking down...More

Definitely include a visit to the village of Broadway after a walk into town via the Cotswold Way. The village is stunning and places of interest include the Gordon Russell Museum, The Ashmolean Museum and attractive shops... 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.
