It is a very strenuous climb to the top but is well worth it when you get there the views on a clear day from Wales in the west to the Cotswolds in the east are good. Then if you are up to it you can walk the full length of the Malvern hills to British camp.

You can walk up to the beacon from the centre of Great Malvern. The tourist info office (WR14 2AA) in the high street gave us a map. If you're fit it takes approx. 45 mins to get to the top, but it's not a race so take as long as you need. My wife and I had a leisurely walk... More

Enjoyed the walk up the hill, even though I had to rest a few times! The view from the top was well worth it though! You can see for miles!

It is a good invigorating walk and if you have the wrong shoes on, choose to go up from the Wyche cutting, as that has a concrete path nearly all the way up.

Easily accessed from central Malverm, this is a steep but satisfying hike with some of the loveliest views ever at the top.

Wonderful walking area, not too steep for the beginner or the unfit! Fantastic views. A number of good places for refreshments such as the Malvern Hills Hotel.

The Malvern hills are 9 miles long and have views to three counties. On a clear day you can see the Cotswolds. The Beacon is the highest point of the hills and is quite a long walk from the Herefordshire beacon which is at the other end of the hills. Although Malvern means "Bare Hills" there are many wild flowers... More
