Brainchild of the great 18th Century landscape designer, Capability Brown, Broadway Tower was designed as an eccentric amalgamation of architectural features ranging from turrets, battlements and gargoyles to balconies.
The location for the Tower was wisely chosen, a dramatic outlook on a pre-medieval trading route and beacon hill. In fact the Royal Observer Corps used the unique vantage point to track enemy planes over England during the world wars of the 20th Century and later constructed a nuclear bunker to report nuclear attacks during the "Cold War".
Today visitors can walk through beauty of the park before enjoying a leisurely climb up the Tower to enjoy the exhibitions housed on three floors, which describe the history of its occupants and colourful past.
Broadway Tower is on the A44 Evesham/Moreton in Marsh route
1 mile south-east of Broadway, Worcestershire WR12 7LB.
