Local Information

In Worcestershire, England one can find the small village of Broadway located inside of the Cotswolds. Most often referred to simply as the jewel of the Cotswolds, Broadway is situated just below Fish Hill at the western escarpment of the Cotswold Hills. The centre of town yields a large green that is lined with chestnut trees and buildings made of locally quarried limestone from the Cotswolds. However, the town gets its name from the wide main street which is fringed on both sides by grass and thus the term broad way.

Broadway was once a bustling stage coach location for those who were traveling from Worcestershire to London or back, it had also become the home to many writers and artists such as John Singer Sargent, Elgar, Vaughan Williams, J.M. Barrie, Mary Anderson as well as William Morris. Furthermore the home of Lucia, Riseholme, is thought to have been based on Broadway in the E F Benson novels.

In 2004, the age of Broadway was shown to be older when members of the Worcestershire Young Archaeologist's Club discovered both Medieval as well as Roman domestic waste especially that of Mesolithic flints. After this discovery, the history of Broadway was able to be traced back as far as 5,000 years ago and many even consider it to now be one of the very first partially settled locations in England.

Because of the number of artists and writers who had established Broadway as their home, today the town is known as being a centre for both arts as well as antiques. For those who are choosing to explore the Cotswolds, this is also the perfect location to use as a home base. Furthermore, when the Cheltenham Gold Cup is occurring, Broadway is also the perfect place to stay while watching the races.

Broadway is focused on tourism with a large number of hotels and lodges to choose from. You can also find a large number of pubs, bed and breakfasts, art galleries, shops and let’s not forget tea rooms and restaurants.

In Broadway County Park you can find the 55 foot tall Broadway Tower as well as check out nearby Chipping Campden. This is also a perfect location for those wishing to check out Snowshill village, the Snowshill Manor or even for some leisurely horseback riding into the Cotswolds.
