You have parkings very close by, even if you pay for them. It was 3£ for a day. From the parking at the Beacon Rd, which you find from the B4218, road towards Colwall. From the parking the path is easy, just keep going uphill, you arrive by a "Gold Mine" cemented shaft. It's about 1h walk, with photos and... More

The Beacon can be approached from a number of routes - directly via quite steep routes from the West or East, or obliquely via more gentle footpaths along the crest of the Malvern Hills. If the weather is fine and clear you will be rewarded by stunning views across Hereford towards Wales and across Worcestershire and the Severn plain.

I've never been on Worcestershire Beacon when it's not teeming with families, mountain bikers or couples enjoying a picnic and the views. There are often birds of prey hunting below the beacon, and on a clear day you can see the surrounding mountain rangess, which are all listed on the monument to Queen Victoria that has been built on its...

There are several walks to the top of the Beacon from various areas of Malvern. Many of the walks now have tarmacadam surfaces enabling those using wheelchairs etc to gain access to this beauty spot.

A well marked path from Great Malvern took us to the top of the Worcestershire Beacon in under an hour (our group included some slow walkers). Windy on the top! Spectacular 360 deg views.

The views from the Malvern Hills are on par with the Lake District. You have views over 360 degrees over 70 miles in all directions. The hills are shared with walkers, cyclists, sheep, cows and a wide range of natural animals...it's a truly fantastic environment pleasure to visit. As a keen mtb cyclist can I please say...if your cycling please... More

A tough climb, even from the Wyche Cutting, but worth it; metalled path all the way if you need it, or take the more direct route for a more challenging climb. If it's windy, it will be breezy on top.

Climb to the top and see the Severn Valley on one side and all the way to Wales on the other. View of British camp iron age fort along the ridge and great walking all around. Little cafe St Anne's half way up and lots of eateries all around

A lovely walk and good way to keep fit any day. If time permits during opening hours, advise calling for refreshments at St Anns Well on way up. Best views on clear days with sunshine for photographs. Currently unspoilt so good time to visit.
