So after the lovely carvery lunch we headed off to the quaint village of Broadway for a wonder round – one of the favourite stops for coach tours and you can always see hoards of yanks and europeans wondering up and down the main street (depending on the season). It’s one of the more famous villages in the Cotswolds (which is an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty).
When we arrived the weather was pretty nice, blue skies and fluffy white clouds lining the famous wide main street.
The place was fairly busy, mostly with Europeans at that time of year and I guess a few septic tanks thrown in for good measure 😉
Broadway has many tiny boutique hotels like this – Broadway Hotel.
There are also many old fashioned Thatched cottages.
A typical Cotswold Cottage made from Cotswold Stone (a type of Limestone).
Double yellow lines means no waiting, no stopping, no parking at all!
We had some fresh ice cream served by a mother and daughter on the street and then headed back the car.
It was a nice afternoon and a nice walk, after that it was off to the city again (Birmingham) for dinner at my aunts house.

this is reminding me of hot fuzz. :/
nice shots 😉 keep it up.=)
KY: Hahaha yeah it’s that same kind of village.
Ds: Thanks, will do! Plenty more to come.
I like the boutique hotel – Broadway. How much would a place like this cost? Love the cottage style accommodations.
Hmm…that wire thing, it doesn’t look like barbed wire but more like razor wire, but thicker.
Great photos, ST, especially the last one. I like moments captured like these. 🙂
Huai Bin: You can find the prices here for that hotel. Yah it’s actually pretty thick, it’s just to stop people sitting on the wall and for a bit of decoration – Thanks!
I just love that picture of the sun rays and the hotel!! it’s something i’ve been trying to learn. how’d you capture that? ppl keep on telling me to get an ND filter. did you use one? btw, out of interest, what camera are you using?
triSh: Just use stopped down aperture, at least f/22 should do it and underexpose. Didn’t use any filters. I’m using Nikon D200.
I run a website all about Broadway, love the photos you have taken as I also have an interest in photography
