Broadway

Broadway is one of the most visited villages in the Cotswolds, and is situated in Worcestershire.

It is located about five miles from Evesham, fifteen miles from Cheltenham and fifteen miles from Stratford-upon-Avon.

Broadway is one of the showplace villages of England, built of the glowing Cotswold stone, and is regarded as part of the Cotswolds trail by visitors both from the rest of Britain and from abroad.

In fact, Broadway is technically not part of the Cotswolds at all, as it lies at the foot of the escarpment where this geological feature ends.

Along the main village street, truly a broad way, are many fine buildings, including old farmhouses and cottages. A good number of these are now used as tea shops, restaurants and gift shops.

The Lygon Arms hotel dates back to the 17th century, and was formerly a coaching inn.

There is a church in the village centre, but a mile away is the much older St. Eadurga's Church, dating from the Norman period.

Behind Broadway, Fish Hill rises to 1024 feet, and is surmounted by the Broadway Tower. a folly constructed in 1793.
