Explore the beautiful Cotswold countryside with the Cotswold Walks app
Often referred to as the 'Jewel of the Cotswolds', the picturesque Worcestershire village of Broadway lies below Fish Hill on the Cotswold escarpment between the towns of Moreton-in-Marsh and Evesham.
Popular with visitors, the village has a pretty high street lined with horse chestnut trees and includes a mixture of period houses and picturesque honey-coloured Cotswold stone cottages along with many shops, cafes and pubs to visit.
The enchanting walk begins in the village before heading out into the countryside for a steady climb to the top of escarpment. Broadway Tower sits atop the hill, the second highest point in the Cotswolds, offering unrivalled views of the surrounding countryside. Broadway Tower, the brainchild of Capability Brown, was the country retreat of the writer, designer and socialist William Morris.
The nearby Morris and Brown Café provides an opportunity for a break before returning along the Cotswold Way back into Broadway village.
