A famous Cotswold beauty spot, and popular throughout the year. As its name suggests, Broadway is dominated by a wide main street lined with independent shops, restaurants, hotels and plenty of antique shops. The Cotswold scarp runs down through the valley into the Evesham Vale (a great place to visit during asparagus season).
St Eadburgha’s Church is tucked away on the Snowshill Road, but worth searching out. The Lygon Arms Hotel was once a manor house and is something of a Cotswold institution – in its time it has hosted both Charles I and Oliver Cromwell.
Broadway Tower sits high up on the Cotswold scarp overlooking the town and is a true delight to the landscape. The folly, which was designed by Capability Brown, sits 312 metres above sea level. It’s the second highest point on the Cotswolds escarpment with really beautiful views, so it’s definitely worth a visit.
