Highly recommended, but not for ignorant people. During Remembrance Tide 2018, the Carillon Museum and Queen's Park were bedecked with moving tributes and poppies. We've been here many times, and more recently when it was being renovated. Comments about it 'glorifying war' are asinine; military...More

If you have an interest in WW1 & WW2 memorabilia then this is definitely worth a look. The volunteer guides are very knowledgeable about the artefacts. If you have the legs for it, then walk to the top for a great view over Loughborough.

Great History place to visit. Seeing as the Carillon is in my home town it’s wildly know land mark for Loughborough. Well worth a visit.

Great little museum and observation for the carillon bells. Worth goin to watch the carillonneur play and climb up the tower. Also worth going on Remembrance Sunday to the service - huge numbers still gather for a moving service as poppies fall from the tower.
