A genuine folly loaded with history, Broadway Tower was designed by architect James Wyatt in 1794. Follies were structures usually built for decorative rather than practical purposes, and this tower was no exception. Wyatt designed it for Lady Coventry, who wondered if a light on the second highest hill in the area, where beacons were customarily lit on special occasions, could be seen from her house in Worcester. The lady’s house was approximately 35 km (22 mi) away and, as it turned out, the beacon could be seen clearly. Today, the tower is an ideal lookout spot and the center of a country park with various exhibits open to the public. Visit the site on a sunny day, and don’t forget to bring your camera.

Broadway Tower reviews
Was staying in Broadway for the weekend and the weather was lovely so we fancied a walk and took a walk up to the Broadway Tower, it was just over a 4 mile walk from the village up to the tower and... more »
Fantastic views and nice walk. The staff were extremely friendly and very helpful, both at the tower and in the cafe. Well worth a visit more »
I've been here in the day and must say it's a beautiful location with amazing views, the Nuclear Bunker is well worth a visit and offers an abundance of history and information regarding life during the cold war. I've also been up here for night Photography and found it to be an extremely ideal location, lighting conditions are great with very little light pollution for the area which means you can actually see the milky way with your naked eye once they've adjusted (no phone screens or touches for 20 mins), just need to get up here for some early morning shots with the deer now.
Great 360° views of many counties. Really interesting displays in the tower of it's history, links with William Morris and also the Royal Observer Corps. Fascinating tour of the Nuclear bunker. It's also a lovely park for walking.
