A walk on a winters day. A reasonable walk up the hill. Worth a visit. We stayed in a local hotel and the next day we walked from Broadway up-to the tower.

It’s geographical position (second-highest point of the Cotswolds) gives Broadway Tower a great view of nearly every place around. Unfortunately, they ask you to pay 5£ per person to climb on top of the tower. Besides of the fact that it was built for Lady...More

A lovely folly perched on top of the hill, with wonderful views! We were lucky with the weather, and although cold, we had great views. A quick walk to the tower from the top of the car park, which took us approx. 10mins or so....More

GBP5 to climb a tower giving you views you can get while driving around. The scenery is beautiful. This is a bit of a joke.

Went here today after looking of TripAdvisor for recommendations. Whilst other areas only had a frost, this location had had some snow fall. Nice walk although didn’t walk half as much as I probably could have because of the snow and ice on the ground....More

Always go with the family in summer. Very popular but can't really see the attraction as there is not a lot to see. A lot of History here though.

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£.
