Broadway: A Cotswolds Village With Olde World Charm (2023)

Broadway’s timeless charm, Cotswold’s beauty in full form, nature’s tranquil calm


Are you ready to explore Broadway in the Cotswolds?

This village was once a major stop on the stagecoach route from Worcester to London, and Broadway gets its name from the wide road that was built to accommodate the coaches.

Known for its honey-colored stone houses, quaint shops, and stunning views of the surrounding countryside, visitors have an opportunity to see what olde England looked like; just pretend modern conveniences like cars and mobile phones don’t exist!

When you arrive, start your journey on the main street, which is lined with independent shops, cafes, and restaurants.

You can grab a cup of coffee at The Tisanes Tea Room or enjoy a traditional pub lunch at The Crown and Trumpet.

For dinner, head to Russell’s of Broadway, a Michelin-starred restaurant that serves up delicious modern British cuisine.

As for accommodation, Broadway has plenty of options to suit all budgets.

You can stay at The Lygon Arms, a historic hotel that dates back to the 16th century, or opt for a cozy bed and breakfast like The Olive Branch. There are other places to stay nearby including cottages for rent (pre-booking required).

When it comes to nearby attractions, Broadway Tower is a must-visit and sits on top of a hill giving the most amazing bird’s eye view of the Cotswolds and is steeped in history.

If you have time, be sure to explore some of the other nearby villages like Chipping Campden and Bourton-on-the-Water. Each one has its own unique charm and is worth a visit.

If you’re flying into Heathrow Airport, Broadway is approximately a two-hour drive away. But trust us, the journey is worth it.
