The charming village of Broadway nestles beneath the Worcestershire hills of the Cotswolds. This quintessentially English village is lively and vibrant, with a superb range of unique shops, designer boutiques and restaurants, but is also steeped in history - with its origins dating back to Roman times. In the 1600s it was a major stopping place for the stage coaches that travelled between Worcester and London – with the world-renowned Lygon Arms remaining popular with travellers and visitors. In later years, it attracted artists and writers such as JM Barrie, Vaughan Williams, Edward Elgar and American artists Edwin Austin Abbey and John Singer Sargent. These artists were inspired by the beauty of the village and its surroundings – in particular the Cotswold stone buildings. The artistic influence remains today and Broadway is home to a variety of top class Cotswold galleries providing a broad range of works of art. Broadway is an excellent ‘base’ for exploring other parts of the Cotswolds and surrounding area, such as Stratford-On-Avon, Cheltenham Spa and Worcester.
