    The building is quite grand and interesting, and contains local history and modern art. Costs £5 each. Okay for a mooch.

    I am a collector of paintings by the Scottish artist Stephen Mangan so was keen to visit this gallery when I saw some of his works in the window. His works have a mysterious otherworldly feel whether depicting caracaturish people in ritual games, Glasgow tenements or Dockyard scenes. An elderly gent came to open the door when we rang. However he did not seem very impressed when I expressed an Interest in Stephen Mangan perhaps because his was part of last month’s exhibition. On the walls today were works by David Curtis part of an exhibition starting officially in December. Whether townscapes or seascapes the artist’s eye for detail was quite extraordinary. However after the briefest perusal of his works in a number of small rooms mine host told us we should leave via the back door which saved him re-opening the front.

    The John Noott galleries have long been a feature of the Broadway art scene. Today their main gallery was in a state of some confusion as items were still being unpacked from a recent art fair. But there was plenty of colourful work on the walls by contemporary artists such as Mike Bernard, Caroline Bailey and Christine Woodside to name but three. I also saw some abstract landscapes by an artist I hadn’t come across before, Chris Tkacz. The John Noott galleries do not offer work by great masters such as Trinity House or the Haynes galleries but work which is both accomplished and affordable nonetheless. Best of all is its garden with intriguing sculpture of real quality.

    The Priory is one of the smaller art galleries to grace Broadway’s High Street. Its paintings are predominantly still lives and nudes. What caught my eye were some quirky sculptures of figures with animal or bird heads. I enjoyed the bewigged and gowned advocate with an owl’s head and pince-nez.

    Come here most years. If you time it right (end of July), you can arrive at harvest time, still see loads of Lavender growing in the fields but also see (and Smell!) some of it being harvested in the distillery.

    It's not the most exciting place I have to admit. So I do understand some of the comments about it being "expensive for what it is". But what you get is a relaxing place to spend a few hours without phone signal and just peace and quiet and to some that will be worth it.

    PROS
    - If you avoid the weekends, it's a huge area loads of space to park, and walk around, take photos without bumping into people or having them photobombing you.

    - Every year they add something new. This year they had a woodland walk. Really didn't expect much, but it's lovely and quite deceiving how big an area it is. Get to the top corner and you realise you're on a proper hill with a fabulous view. Lots of little bits for younger people to play on, hide and seek etc. That's really good. I like how the owners invest back into the business and add things.

    - The shop / cafe kiosk being outside in a cabin. This just works. Few years ago it was in a barn and if you arrived on a semi-busy day, it was HELL. Lines and lines of people waiting to buy stuff, slow service and just so many people it was anxiety-inducing. The new design is better. It's much more efficient.

    - Lots of bee friendly plants added. Too much of one crop in an area can be harmful, so this is a really nice touch to add diversity. There are also little signs in one area telling you the variety and name of the plants so you can buy your own.

    CONS
    - Still using Portaloos. They're rank at the best of times and these are a blight on a nice experience. On a slope, doors banging closed, and just gross. I'd like to see them set up something more substantial.

    - Surrounding roads. Absolutely nothing the owners can do about the narrow tracks, but some more signage around could help people find (and leave) the site better. No signal coverage for most phone networks, so if you get lost it's bad.

    - Waste. Most of the stuff they sell (cups, cans, bottles) is 100% recyclable, but just one general waste bin to put it all in. Not good. For a business that must make well in excess of £10,000 a day from visiting trade. They should be doing their bit and allowing recycling to happen.

    - Food options. Pretty limited, and hardly any Vegan items.

    We visited Broadway today so decided to pop into Hamiltons for some sweets. The owner was really lovely and we had a nice chat. Fantastic array of sweets and chocolates 🥰

    I had read about this shop well before I travelled to England, and was looking forward to visiting. The shop front windows held Edwardian tea gowns surrounded by beautiful items. The proprietor is a lovely, friendly and knowledgeable guide to her well curated collection. I came away with a pair of vintage Christian Dior earrings that I adore! I love this shop!

    It was so windy during our visit to Broadway that we wandered into the Woollen Mill to purchase stocking caps for the rest of our shopping experience! Finally warm, at only 3 pounds (!), we shopped a bit longer and discovered in the long and narrow shop that there was everything from clothing to jellies for sale! If you're looking for some different souvenirs, this may be the place to stop. If you're expecting expensive purchases, you will be pleasantly surprised as most of the prices are quite reasonable! The clerk was very helpful and friendly. We donned those warm caps and headed into the bluster for more shopping.
