“Imagine a totally electrifying day out at Britain’s ultimate castle. Where you can immerse yourself in a thousand years of jaw-dropping history – come rain or shine.Where ancient myths and spell-binding tales set your imagination alight, and your hair on end. Where princesses are pampered and maidens are wooed, as winners become true heroes and losers are confined to dark, dank dungeons to be forgotten for eternity. It could only be Warwick Castle.”

“The Broadway Museum and Art Gallery, formerly the Ashmolean Museum Broadway, is a community museum that aims to tell the story of the village through the ages and display important works of art. There is a permanent collection of art and special touring exhibitions with the works loaned from the Ashmolean Museum Oxford. For 2017 we have added new displays to offer visitors a greater insight into the history of Broadway; from the prosperity of the wool industry in 1100-1550 and the importance of the coaching heritage in the 17th century to the arrival of the railways of the 19th century. ”
