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

If you pick the right day, you can see for miles from here. The tower itself is well worth a visit, with William Morris memorabilia on display. It is also a great spot for a picnic or refreshments from the excellent cafe on a warm...More

We are told you can see in excess of 60 miles from the top. Alas, too cloudy & wet and just a few hundred meters during the visit. Nonetheless, its a great folly. Really well constructed given it does (did) not serve any real purpose....More

Thank you so much for visiting and taking the time to give us your feedback. We were very surprised when a recent OS study identified views in a 62 mile radius. That makes a grand total of 16 Counties you can see from the roof...More

This place is a bit of a gem that we'd never heard of. It's easy to walk to from the car park and you don't have to go up the tower for amazing views. The tower is worth going into though and is worth the...More

This is one of the best , if not the best place , to get views over 8 counties. The exhibition is also interesting, although the Nuclear bunker was a disappointment, from expectations I had having visited 2 others. It was really just an observation...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£.

Not into the Tower, but the surrounding countryside would be nice for a well behaved dog on a lead.
