Culture/Sightseeing

The village of Broadway has an appropriate name with its wide High Street. Apparently there used to be two small streams running each side of the street, with buildings either side of the brooks and with the road down the middle. (These are now underground in pipes) DIscoveries have been made which suggest that the village could be 5000 years old. More recently it has been the home of the Arts and Crafts movement. One of the local attractions is the Gordon Russell Design Museum. Along the main street there are shops, restaurants, antique centres and tearooms.

We visited the Tisanes Tearoom for afternoon tea. It is a 17th century Cotswold stone building on the High Street. There was a choice of 40 leaf teas and the scones were delicious. There is a garden to the rear, but we decided to stay inside as the sun was too hot on that day. It was very relaxing and the staff were friendly.

Near the village on the escarpment is Broadway Tower an iconic landmark, which is set in 50 acres of parkland conceived by Capability Brown. Visitors can experience the history on three floors before climbing to the rooftop viewing platform, where 16 counties can be seen. I’m afraid it would have been too much for me – walking with two crutches at that time! But if you are in that part of Worcestershire I’m sure it would be well worth a visit.

Broadway is in a beautiful part of the country which I would recommend.
