Broadway and surrounding villages
Broadway lies at the entrance to the Vale of Evesham at the foot of the Cotswolds. The combination of natural and built environment combine to create a village that is full of historic character and charm whilst also being a modern, vibrant village with activities and attractions for visitors and residents alike.
Standing tall above the village on Fish Hill is Broadway Tower. Built by the Earl of Coventry in the 18th Century, the tower is one of England’s outstanding viewpoints and at 1024 feet (312m) above sea level it is the second highest point on the Cotswold escarpment. The tower is on the Cotswold Way footpath which also passes through the village. A bracing walk up Fish Hill is rewarded by both the stunning views and also the opportunity for refreshments at the café.
In the village itself, the honey coloured stone contrasts with the Village Green to provide perfect photo opportunities. The Cotswold craft heritage is kept alive through the Gordon Russell Design Museum, and the Ashmolean at Broadway brings an international reputation. The art heritage of John Singer Sargent and the Broadway Colony is reflected in many galleries that also include a more contemporary offer. Food and drink is available both within shops and in restaurants, cafes and tea rooms to suit all budgets and tastes. The Activity Park is a very popular attraction for parents and children alike.
With several events throughout the year including a horticultural show, food festival and the long established late night shopping at Christmas, Broadway always has something to offer everyone.
