1. Broadway Tower
If you appreciate real beauty in nature and have a love for old towers, Broadway Tower is one of the best places to visit and also one of the most popular. It's one of England's outstanding viewpoints, standing at 1,024 feet above sea level, and the second highest point on the Cotswold escarpment.
If it’s great views you love, make sure to go to the roof of the tower to take in the breath-taking scene of panoramic rolling countryside. At the top, try to see how many English counties you can spot from the sixteen counties that can be seen on a clear day.
Across the three floors of the tower you can learn all about the interesting history, which reveals a time when the tower housed a printing press, and once kept one of the largest personal collections of rare literature and books in the 19th Century.
Broadway Tower is also conveniently located on the Cotswold Way so makes for the perfect place to begin a walk or hike. If you prefer not to do much, it’s a great excuse to take the family outdoors to enjoy a scenic picnic. There's a good chance you’ll spot wild red deer roaming around. Don’t forget your camera when you do visit Broadway Tower, as you’ll be witnessing one of the best views in the Cotswolds.
