Cotswolds Finest Attractions A-Z

Broadway Tower

Nr Broadway, Worcestershire

Chris Dee 0 81 Article rating: No rating

Historic and impressive folly overlooking the town of Broadway. Cafe, museum, shop and, er, nuclear bunker.

You can easily drive to Broadway Tower, but if you have a little more time, there’s an excellent circular walk from Broadway up to the Tower. It will probably take a half-day, including some time to look around the Tower (you can go inside) and take in a remarkable view which extends over several counties.

Chedworth Roman Villa

Yanworth, Nr Cheltenham Glos GL54 3LJ

Chris Dee 0 67 Article rating: No rating

Chedworth Roman Villa is one of Britain’s grandest, a legacy of the last century of Roman government, before the Brito-Roman era ended. Although, older, the building was enhanced especially in the 4th Century. It was a substantial villa, even amongst an estimated 50 villas in the Cotswolds. 

Corinium Museum

Cirencester, Gloucestershire

Chris Dee 0 82 Article rating: No rating

A smaller museum with an impressive collection of ancient objects. Corinium (Cirencester) was one of the most important cities in Roman Britain - probably second only to London, in fact.

These days Cirencester is still the largest settlement within the Cotswolds area, as strictly defined. It’s a town of a little under 20,000 people, and a good option when it’s a little rainy in the Cotswold hills, with one-off shops, restaurants, a well-stocked antiques centre and a good Oxfam bookshop.
