Broadway lies to the Northwest of the Cotswolds and is just over the border from Gloucestershire into Worcestershire, at the foot of Fish Hill.
The main street is wide, hence the name Broad Way. There is evidence that a settlement existed there 5000 years ago.
It has many different types of houses and worth a walk up and down the full length of the main street. It offers a museum and art gallery, which explains the history of the town during the wool trade in the Middle Ages.
Here the colour of the Cotswold stone is a much brighter orange and fantastic if seen against a red sunset. It is one of the six market towns founded after the Norman invasion of Britain in 1066. All have Norman churches. Broadway used to be on the main road from London to Worcester. There is a 12th century church, St Eadburgha about a mile outside town. The church in town is much newer.
Some great places to stay in or near Broadway are The Lygon Arms in the middle of the village or Buckland Manor, a little way outside the village but as peaceful as you can get.
