The Sunday Vibe | Broadway

Today we spent the afternoon in "The Jewel of Cotswolds", beautiful Broadway.

Broadway is a bustling town, famously an area of outstanding natural beauty (AONBs in England and Wales) mainly known for Broadway Tower, The Lygon Arms Hotel and it's picturesque high street.

What we love about Broadway is that it is visited by 1000's of tourists each week, but it still has a local feel to it, with plenty of shops, cafes, restaurants and walks to keep you busy.

You could make a whole day or weekend of visiting Broadway but here are a few places we visited on a Sunday afternoon.

Cotswold Trading is one of those shop's that you can't go into without coming out with something! It is an Aladdin's cave of all things gifty, stocking Cath Kidston, Crab Tree and Evelyn, L'Occitane, KitchenAid, Magpie and so much more! If you're a fan of then this is the place for you! and if you can't get yourself to Broadway then order off their website.
We loved their selections of funny and thoughtful cards, gorgeous wrapping, hilarious and insightful books, Magpie crockery and little trinkets. In addition to this we were pleased that they also stocked local produce, including La De Da spoons, Cotswold Lavender products and Cotswold  Company Fair Trade Fudge.
Emily bought this lovely little songbird pot for her earrings.

Sue Parkinson is a well established long standing boutique where you will find gorgeous smelling candles and home fragrances, high fashion womenswear and as a lovely surprise a collection of Mulberry purses and bags.

All My Heart is another little shop that is almost impossible to go into without buying anything. They have a really good mix of good quality jewellery and accessories to little candles and fun trinkets. A really good shop for small gifts. Emily bought a little vase that cost £4.95 and Meg bought some Juicy Lucy note cards!

The Market Pantry has only been in Broadway for 18 months and is family owned and run by a husband and wife duo who have turned this little property into a boutique styled deli/pantry café.
All of their cakes are baked from home and all other food is made onsite from local produce. 
Megs had a delicious iced coffee and I had a flat white, which both went well with the Apricot and ginger flapjack that we shared! Yum!

Hamilton's of Broadway is an old fashioned styled sweet shop where Emily picked up some Cotswold fudge! So nice, it didn't last long.
