The beautiful Cotswold village of Broadway is less than 90 miles from our part of West London. We returned there recently with The Boy Child, with the sole purpose of walking him up to Broadway Tower. We took the route that avoids contact with the local shoot and those almost-but-not-quite-dead pheasants; the only obstacles this time around were copious amounts of sheep poo. The weather was glorious and we made it to the top in a little over 30 minutes. The climb was quite steep in places; so much so, the step count on my ‘phone recorded me as having climbed 50 flights of stairs! The Boy Child was full of beans, gambling about like a puppy and made it to the top of the tower in one go. The Brainy One and I may have stopped at certain point to admire the view …At just under 90 miles from London, Broadway is doable for a day out … if you’re happy to leave home early (we left at 8.15am). The village is busy in the Summer months and arriving any later than 10am risks not finding a space in any of the car parks.
