broadway village walking 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 why you might spot ‘Binderella’.
Broadway is one of England’s most beautiful and most visited villages. This 90-minute tour shows you where some of 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, how a famous American actress became a major benefactor, 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.

'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?'
