See thirteen counties in one day

Broadway Tower is one of England's outstanding viewpoints. It is possible to survey an area which includes as many as thirteen counties. The views encompass the Vales of Evesham and Gloucester. On a clear day you may also see across the Severn Valley as far as the Welsh mountains and beyond.

The Tower's Colourful Past

Built on an ancient beacon site, Broadway Tower has had a colourful history as - amongst others - home to the renowned printing press of Sir Thomas Phillips, country retreat for the Pre-Raphaelite artists, notably the artist, designer, writer, craftsman, and socialist William Morris, location for the studies of the distinguished archaeologist Sir Arthur Evans.

Today the Tower houses exhibitions connected with its past and the surrounding area. There is a fully illustrated guidebook to Broadway Tower Country Park available.

There is also a Royal Observer Corps post on site and the last resident of the Tower was in the Corps. The site includes a nuclear bunker which is open on certain days of the year, with retired members of the Corps on site, which can be found on the web site and it is also possible to have it opened by private arrangement.
