There are many restaurants and exclusive shops and this gives Broadway an affinity with Burford on the other side of the Cotswolds which is also a mecca for quality shopping. Due to its popularity there are also the usual proliferation of souvenir shops.

The village began as a possession of the Benedictine Abbey of Pershore and remained so until the reformation in 1539, when it was sold into private hands by the Crown. Until the time of the railways the village was an important coaching stop on the route from London to Worcester, but then slipped into obscurity. The village came to life again when discovered by William Morris and his wide circle of artistic followers who brought the sleepy village to prominence once again and it became the haunt of many famous artists.

Broadway is situated between Oxford and Worcester on the A44.
