The Carillon Tower
The Carillon Tower is a war memorial and museum rolled into one, with a really unusual bell tower that houses 47 different bells. They can be played to ring out melodies rather than peels.
You can visit the ground floor for free, but there is a very small cost for visiting other floors and the tower climb.
The Tower and museum are open between Good Friday to 30th September, everyday but Monday’s 1pm – 4.30pm. However, if you wish to visit outside these times you will need to contact the museum.
Contact details and more information are available here.
A short stroll across the park and you’ll reach Charnwood Museum. The museum houses a selection of permanent and temporary exhibitions. It is situated right in the centre of Loughborough in Queen’s Park and has free entry.
Opening times vary throughout the year so double check before planning a visit.
