broadway village tour
Behind Broadway’s honeystoned elegance are fabulous stories of artists and actors, celebrity cricket matches and a drunken parson whose son brought disgrace on his family. Find out why Broadway’s top hotel has had seven names, how its most peaceful street was once like a motorway… and where you might spot ‘Binderella’.
Broadway is one of England’s most beautiful and popular villages. This tour shows you where the artistic and Bohemian ‘Broadway colony’ lived, worked and played as well as the tragic death of their leader.
You will also learn how Broadway got its name, about a famous American actress who became a major benefactor, see where bulls were baited, and where stagecoach passengers had to get out and push!
We meet furniture designer Gordon Russell and discover his connection with a mysterious half-timbered gable. We also encounter Peter Pan (sort of), Charles I and a milestone with an important safety message.
