Broadway lies at the foot of the Cotswold Hills in the south eastern tip of Worcestershire and dates back at least 2000 years. Broadway is known, worldwide, as a tourist destination and is often referred as 'The Jewel of the Cotswolds'. The village has several historic buildings including the 12th century St. Eadburgha's Church and the 14th century Abbott's Grange and Priors Manse. During the 1600's Broadway was an important staging post for the horse-drawn coaches travelling from Worcester to London and its was at this time that several inns and hostelries opened, including the famous Lygon Arms, which still today attracts visitors from all over the world. The Gordon Russell Heritage Centre which is in Russell Square, just off the High Street, is located on the site of the original factory and celebrates the life and works of the famous furniture maker. Broadway Tower is situated on the top the escapment and gives visitors a fantastic view of the village and surrounding countryside.
