About Broadway

An archetypal Cotswolds village complete with elegant architecture in golden stone, tea rooms, art galleries and antique shops packed with curios, Broadway is a great base for exploring the region.

The 'Broad Way' from the name, refers to the road leading from the base of the western Cotswolds escarpment and into town. Along it you'll find a collection of lovely 16th Century cottages - some of which are now amongst the best places to stay in Broadway - and lovely rural views.

Several famous Britons have called this rural idyll their home, including J.M. Barrie, William Morris, Vaughn Williams and Sir Edward Elgar, and it's easy to see why this spot piqued their imaginations.

You're right on the northern side of the Cotswolds, so all around are peacefully rolling rural views. You can take better advantage of these if you opt to stroll a bit of The Cotswolds Way.

Or do like William Morris did, and spend some time at the Broadway Tower, and ancient beacon site and now home to a Morris exhibition. Broadway also has an outpost of the Ashmolean Museum.

Like all Cotswolds hotspots it gets incredibly busy here during the summer months, so if you want a bed in one of the best places to stay in Broadway, plan well ahead.
