The Malvern Hills Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty is a natural border between Worcestershire and Herefordshire. Rightly so, it is one of the best places to visit in Worcestershire for scenery; from ancient woodlands and open fields to dramatic cliffs, there are stunning views. Plus, there are outdoor pursuits including hiking, horse-riding, hang-gliding and cycling to enjoy.
The hillside town of Malvern, once a Victorian spa town, has three town centres (Great Malvern, Barnards Green and Malvern Link). Between them, you’ll find the delights of antique shops, art galleries and fresh produce shops.
Malvern also has links with composer, Edward Elgar. To find out more, tour the Elgar Trail. Other towns worthy of inspection are Tenbury Wells in the stunning Teme Valley and the historic riverside town of Upton-upon-Severn. Meanwhile, classic car-lovers should visit the Morgan Motor Company factory.
