Travel Tips for Broadway

The secret passage

by evaanna

I liked this secret passage between the two houses in High Street very much. It reminded me of H.C. Andersen's story 'The Snow Queen' where the boy and the girl lived in houses linked by a first floor garden. I could imagine the passage being a place of secret rendezvous of young people from the neighbouring houses. I don't know but will try to find out what the passage was really for. The reason for building it was probably much more prosaic.
And here is what I have found out: The charming house on the left is now a restaurant, Goblets and I have just discovered that it is part of the Lygon Arms, the famous inn where King Charles I met with his supporters, and where Cromwell stayed too, not at the same time of course. That might, but only might, explain the 'secret passage', a hideout or a way out through the other building in case of danger. At present, the passage might be part of King Charles I's Suite at the Lygon Arms, as they mention a secret passage (yes, that's what they call it) belonging to it on their page. But here I am only speculating and would have to go there again to check if it's true. Isn't discovering history fascinating?

England. Now that we were closer to the tower, I took that opportunity to snap as many photos as possible !
Roger's mum by the way was waiting for us in the car ! Surely she couldn't climb up the fence...

England. It is possible to hike up the hill where the Broadway Tower is situated as it's all part of the hiking trails around The Cotswold region.
If not because of Roger & Patrick, I would have to hike up the hill to be this near to the tower !

This was the last photo as we were walking back to the fence where we climbed over, to the car. Roger's mum was probably waiting for us anxiously...
I bidded goodbye to the tower.
A great memory for me to cherish forever ! Thanks in no small amount to Patrick & Roger !Prior to reaching The Broadway Tower, We were around Broadway Town [Please click...]; So, please take a look of this beautiful town...OR...NEXT DESTINATION :

Almost too good to give away...

by londonlover

Some things are just so perfect, you hate to advertise them for fear that they'll become too popular. Well, I'm taking the risk for the sake of all my VT friends. :)

If you stay in Broadway, you MUST take a horse-drawn carriage ride hosted by Coach House Services. You will be carried away in a period carriage drawn by lovely horses, shown around the tiny little Cotswolds villages by a friendly local expert, treated to a delicous picnic lunch, then returned to your B&B. It's an unforgettably beautiful experience...beyond words.
