Living in Broadway: The Local Area Guide

Ideally located in the heart of the scenic Cotswolds, Broadway village is part of Worcestershire County, although it's quite close to the Gloucestershire border. Known for its long history as a retreat for artists, it's also known as the 'The Jewel of the Cotswolds' for its quaint cottages, charming leafy boulevards and picturesque flower boxes. West Midland destinations like Stratford-upon-Avon and Warwick are a short distance away, as is the city of Birmingham and the historical sights of Bath.

Broadway's name stems from its exceptionally broad High Street, which is also one of the longest in England. The settlement played an important part as the centre of the Arts and Crafts movement, and its creative energy brought a flood of artists, designers and writers over the years from JM Barrie to John Singer Sargent. This artistic influence remains today, with many local artists and thriving galleries calling Broadway their home. Visitors can enjoy visits to arts centres like the Ashmolean and Gordon Russell Museums, and there's an annual Arts Festival each year. Yet this scenic village also holds all the usual practical amenities for residents, including a GP surgery, post office, supermarket, and churches.


It's the dream of many to retire in a creative yet idyllic hamlet like Broadway, and as a result, nearly a third of the population is over the age of 65. This is far higher than the national average and there is a strong network of social services, leisure facilities and retirement homes to suit this demographic. According to the 2011 census, the total population in the Broadway electoral division was just over 8,600. Car ownership per household is higher than the UK national average, with an estimated 90 per cent of households owning a car. Many choose to commute to nearby areas like Redditch, Cheltenham, Gloucester, and Evesham.


Families are well served in terms of education, with two primary schools located directly in Broadway. These include St Mary's Catholic and Broadway First School, both of which have good reputations and a small, intimate learning environment.

Another school of note is Bowbrook House School, which includes accommodations for Infants, Juniors, Middle Grades, and a Senior School. Bowbrook was ranked 'Outstanding' in many areas, according to the latest Independent Schools Inspectorate Report, which also noted the high standard of faculty leadership. Most students at Bowbrook live in the immediate vicinity, within a 15 mile radius of the school.


Broadway's central location in comparison to the whole of England is one of its advantages. Residents can get in and out of the village by plane, car, bus, or train as needed. The major motorway in the area is the A44, which links Broadway with further destinations throughout the West Midlands and runs straight through the centre of town.

The nearby towns of Evesham, Moreton-in-Marsh and Honeybourne all contain railway stations, although there isn't one within Broadway. Residents can drive or take a bus to one of these neighbouring stations for links to the rest of the UK. There are also convenient bus services connecting Broadway with both Moreton-in-Marsh and Evesham, as well as three taxi and chauffeur services.

Amenities & Shopping

Broadway's artistic pedigree is readily apparent in its shops, which include a high number of antique and fine art outlets. Some popular highlights include LoveArt Broadway, The Old Print Gallery and Trinity House Paintings, where one can browse through a variety of works and prints from local artists. This is also one of the most fashionable towns in the Cotswolds and fashionistas won't want to miss a visit to Sue Parkinson, a high-end designer boutique, or RedMeg, which offers luxury bags crafted from local designers. The lengthy High Street also includes craft shops, gift stores, garden centres, and plenty of sporting good shops.

A quick journey to Evesham allows you to access bigger brand names at the Riverside Shopping Centre, where you'll find New Look and Boots along with a wealth of other retail outlets. The Evesham Country Park is another family-friendly destination, hosting a number of boutiques as well as a farm shop and several eateries.
