Owner description: 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.

Very picturesque. There are shops and a cafe here which are reasonably priced. Not much to do for kids but very beautiful and relaxing.

We stopped at Broadway Tower as part of a larger tour trough the upper Cotswolds. It's situated on a point that is the second highest elevation in the area, and offers sweeping views of the Cotswolds out some 50 to 70 miles.
We didn't pay the five GB pounds to climb the stair for a 65-foot higher view, but I assume it's that much better.

The hike up to the Tower from Broadway town is beautiful, scenic and full of sheep! It's a fantastic way to get to the tower which takes about 30/40 minutes to get to. Once at the tower the views as stunning! The tower itself is a wonderful thing to see, however the exhibitions and cost to get in were a little disappointing.

As a local couple who visited regularly during our cycle rides to/ from. Moreton in Marsh, we won't be going back as of this week. We had a loyalty card which we'd just filled & called in for a coffee, however £2.90 for a cup of coffee is absolutely disgusting! We were also told they are no longer doing the loyalty cards. To rip off tourists so they go away saying England's nice but too expensive so they won't come back is bad enough, but ripping off locals is short sighted at best, we're the people that are there all year round & we're also the people that recommend places to visitors. Needless to say, we won't be recommending Broadway Towers cafe!

Dear Sharon,

We are so sorry to be loosing you. The £2.90 for 12 oz Lattes is a very representative price in the market place and we do try to give you the best experience with premium crockery, Robert Welsh cutlery, a qualified team of baristas and Extract Coffee that has been voted among the top 5 coffees in the British Isles. We could make the coffee cheaper but that would mean cutting corners and opting for non-fair trade Italian coffee blends and we feel that would indeed be short changing you. We do hope to see you again.
