Places to visit in the Cotswolds: Broadway Tower and Stratford-upon-Avon

Hi! My weekend in the Cotswolds is coming to an end! I really loved this part of the UK, but this weekend hasn’t been long enough to discover it all so I’m hoping to come back soon and visit Bath and Castle Combe! In the meantime, I’m sharing with you my two last places to visit in the Cotswolds and nearby: the Broadway Tower and Stratford-upon-Avon.

Last places to visit in the Cotswolds: Broadway Tower and surroundings

The Broadway Tower has some nice surprises for you and for only £5 it would be a shame not to visit it. The panorama from the top of the tower is superb, especially with a beautiful blue sky! You can enjoy a view made up of forests and green spaces. A real pleasure for the eyes and the soul!
You will also like to visit the Broadway Tower to learn a little more about its history. On each floor, a period of its story is explained: from its creation to the Second World War.

Things to do in Stratford-upon-Avon

I start with a little wink to my Norman compatriots. If this small village became more important in the 12th century, it is above all thanks to a Norman. Jean de Coutances (former treasurer of the diocese of Lisieux) played a major role and helped the town to develop its economy.
Otherwise, just like Tewkesbury or Oxford, Startford-upon-Avon is not part of the Cotswolds, but is nearby. To visit Stratford-upon-Avon or not to visit Stratford-upon-Avon, that is the question! You guessed well, this town is none other than the one where Shakespeare was born. I only made an hour stop, so I didn’t have time to do any activities. But if you wish there are many guided tours  to learn more about the town itself and of course Shakespeare.



Hotels in Stratford-upon-Avon

I have not spent a night in Stratford-upon-Avon but there are some very nice hotels! I’ve made a list of my favourites which you can see on the list below:
