The Lygon Arms, located in the main street of Broadway, is a Hotel steeped in history!

In the 16th century, it was known as the White Hart Inn, the owner was a Mr. White, a Wool merchant.
History was made in 1651, when Oliver Cromwell stayed at the Inn the night before the Battle of Worcester, the final and decisive battle of the great Civil War, fought between King Charles I and his "Cavaliers" and Parliament's "Roundheads".

I always find it fascinating to be in a place like this, where historic people once stood where my husband and I were standing today. The Inn was such a place, it was here where
King Charles1 conferred with his confidants, and what about if you had the same room Oliver Cromwell!

Since 2005, it is known as the Lygon Arms, a traditional Inn, full of history and serving fine cruisine.
