The Elgar Birthplace Museum offers a fascinating insight into the life and music, family and friends, and musical inspirations of Sir Edward Elgar, whose masterpieces include Salut d’Amour, Pomp & Circumstance, the Enigma Variations, and many more.
We are set in the heart of Elgar’s beloved countryside, just 3 miles from the City of Worcester.
So you have been to Broadheath. I fear you did not find the cottage - it is nearer the clump of Scotch firs - I can smell them now - in the hot sun. Oh! how cruel that I was not there - there's nothing between that infancy & now and I want to see it.
(Elgar in a letter to Alice Stuart Wortley)
The Elgar Birthplace Museum has two buildings, the modern Elgar Centre and the atmospheric Birthplace Cottage. Together they reveal the great man behind the music.
