The top of Broadway Tower is said to be the highest point in the Cotswolds at 332 meters. Designed by James Wyatt in1798, and built by Capability Brown the Tower is a Norman-style keep with three rounded turrets. Surrounded by a country park there are extensive views over the Vale of Evesham.

If you have time today, we recommend spending some time at Broadway castle,  as well as the tower itself, you can do a guided tour of a nuclear bunker that was used for monitoring purposes during the cold war.  It is also the perfect spot to grab a bit to eat (Picnic, if the weather is good) or a quick caffeine boost in its cafe! For more information visit: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Broadway_Tower,_Worcestershire  - you can also visit the official webpage of Broadway tower: https://broadwaytower.co.uk/
