broadway village walking tour

Broadway stars

Broadway is one of England’s most beautiful and most visited villages. But behind its honeystoned elegance are fabulous stories of wild artists and actors, celebrity cricket matches and a drunken parson. Find out the seven names of a Broadway hotel, why the village was famed for its furniture … and you might even find ‘Binderella’! 

You will also learn how Broadway got its name, how a famous American actress became a valued resident, 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 the mystery of a gable that came from elsewhere, plus Peter Pan (sort of), Charles I and a milestone with an important safety message.

TESTIMONIALS

'Sean’s storytelling brings Broadway history to life with captivating stories from Broadway, from its connection with arts and crafts to the coaches and horses that used to thunder down the road. And who’d have thought an American woman would have had such an influence on such a quintessentially English place?'
