I believe this is the highest point on the Cotswold Way, great views from the top but expensive at £5 pp.

Broadway Tower is visible from the surrounding area and is certainly beautiful on the eye. There are several floors dedicated to telling the story of the tower, which is quite interesting. The views from the top are stunning, despite being buffeted by strong winds (unfortunate...More

Today was a bit of a gloomy day and cold too. Good for a lovely walk in the cold and frosty air. It’s marked up as about 3 1/2 hours but you can do it quicker. The walk takes you up part of the Cotswolds...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£.
