A unique Capability Brown Folly Tower open to visitors wanting to experience great English heritage in an inspiring location. Graphic displays on three floors, roof viewing platform and Tower Shop are a must for Cotswold visits.Broadway Tower is one of England's outstanding viewpoints and at 1024 feet (312m) above sea level, it is the second highest point on the Cotswold escarpment. Unrivalled views survey an expanse of a 62 mile radius and as many as 16 Counties. Conveniently located on the Cotswold Way, Broadway Tower is the perfect place to start your walk, be it a short circuit or hike. There is ample car parking for patrons of Broadway Tower and refreshments await to reward the completed walk.

We stayed in Broadway for 2 days and walked up to the Tower one morning. The views are stunning and there is a lovely cafe for a well deserved bacon butty, cake and coffee. Highly recommend.

What a good find! Amazing views across to the Welsh Hills. A Capability Brown Folly built by James Wyatt, with exhibitions. A secret nuclear bunker, where enemy planes over England were tracked. A place to eat - breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea.

The sweeping views of the surrounding countryside make this a wonderful place to visit . The history of the tower and bunker make it an interesting place to visit . The nearby restaurant offers delicious food and a great pit stop .

The peace and tranquility of this place just makes you want to stay and look around the views forever. Would help to maybe have a map outside to show you the location of local towns or land marks but all in all a great little spot.

We stumbled across this whilst on holiday in the Cotswolds. The tower is on top of a hill with scenic views all around. It is a perfect location to start a walk/ hike from.

One of the walking trails leads you along plenty to see before you even get to Broadway Tower so you're rewarded with great views on the way not just at the destination.
