Broadway is a traditional English village in the heart of the Cotswolds and is one of the most picturesque places in the country. There are lots of fun things to do in Broadway from exploring the independent shops and cafes on the high street to climbing the Broadway Tower for stunning views of the surrounding countryside.
I’ve been visiting the Cotswolds for years and Broadway is one of my favorite places thanks to its gorgeous stone cottages, country pubs, and scenic walks. I love filling my time while here by visiting nearby stately homes and nature reserves and sampling the local cuisine that can be found at the many great restaurants in town.
The village is also known for its arts scene with lots of galleries and studios dotted around the town and an annual arts festival that attracts thousands of visitors. This idyllic village looks like it’s come straight off of a postcard and is a must-visit for anyone planning on visiting the Cotswolds.

1. Climb the Broadway Tower
The impressive Broadway Tower is a folly (like a castle but ornamental rather than built for defense) atop Broadway Hill just outside of the village. The 65-foot (20-meter) tower stands 1,024 feet (312 meters) above sea level offering magnificent, panoramic views of the surrounding countryside.
This iconic landmark is set within 200 acres of land and was constructed in 1798 from the plans by landscape designer Capability Brown. Inside, you’ll find a beautiful Georgian interior that also doubles as a museum stretched over the building’s three floors.
It’s possible to climb the 60 (odd) steps to the top which is one of the best things to do in Broadway to get a feel for the incredible location.
