Broadway Town Information




Use the links on the left to find information and images for the towns and villages throughout Worcestershire...








Sitting proudly in the Cotswolds, Broadway and its honey-coloured buildings feels untroubled by time and apart from its old-world beauty is noted for antiques, art and local crafts. The ‘Lygon Arms’ was one of the first staging posts to exploit the town’s position on the Worcester to Oxford road while St Eadburgh’s was the village church for 700 years until the Victorians built St Michael’s near the village green. Overlooking the village is Broadway Tower, a folly designed for the 6th Earl of Coventry and one-time home to the influential designer William Morris. A few miles away are the lavender fields of Snowshill, Charles Paget-Wade’s arts and crafts garden and the National Trust’s Snowshill Manor.
