Broadway Tower & Nuclear Bunker Exhibition

KidRated’s Broadway Tower & Nuclear Bunker Exhibition Top Tips:

  • Use as a start or end point for a walk or bike ride
  • Why not visit Chatsworth, where the gardens were also designed by Capability Brown?
  • There’s plenty of free parking so great for a day out with all the family

Broadway Tower is an eccentrically built castle in The Cotswolds, designed by the famous Victorian landscape designer Capability Brown (who also wins KidRated’s best name prize). Climb through three floors of exhibitions about its exciting past before taking in some breath-taking views of up to 16 counties from the roof platform.

 

Scared of heights? While the tower may be a prominent fixture in the rural landscape, the underground nuclear bunker hidden next to the castle is just as interesting to visit.

 

Created in response to the growing threat of nuclear war, the bunker was in use between 1959 and 1991. Though you should stay away if you suffer from claustrophobia, if you can cope with the enclosed space it makes for an interesting piece of modern history. A guided tour lasts around 45 minutes and most weekends retired members of the Royal Observer Corps are on hand to answer your questions. Note that access is via a ladder and under 12s are not allowed in the below ground areas.

 

The Morris and Brown café, named after the designer William Morris and Capability Brown, is a great place for afternoon tea.


Booking Advice:

  • Tickets can be bought online
  • Children under 7 go FREE
  • If you live nearby, consider the annual pass
  • Separate tickets for the tower and the bunker can be bought but a combined ticket is better value for money
