I went to Broadway in the Cotswolds and stayed at the Lygon Arms Hotel. This charming old coaching inn is in the heart of the village and boasts a rich history with many characters who have stayed there from Oliver Cromwell to Richard Burton and Elizabeth Taylor. Apparently, it dates from the 1300s with the earliest written records of the building from 1377 referring to it as the White Hart.
Today it has welcoming log burning fireplaces, is full of nooks and crannies and the restaurant is in the great hall with a vaulted ceiling. A very nice place to stay.
There are two art galleries which are a must to visit, Haynes Fine Art and Trinity House. Haynes Fine Art is a third generation family business and has 12 showrooms.
There is also a lovely shop next to the Museum called Broadway Luxury. Broadway Luxury has some incredible sculptures and glassware and one piece that stood out was a beautiful Murano glass sculpture, a homage to Picasso, by Walter Furlan who works in Venice on Murano glass.
The Broadway Tower in the country park is worth a visit. You journey through time as you climb up the historic tower and at the top on a good day you can see 16 counties over a 62 mile radius.
I wish everybody a Happy Christmas
and peace throughout the coming year
