A Busy Place!

It is a must to reach the beacon. Everybody thinks so because there are loads of people up there. The walking is easy for us old guys and the rewards are outstanding.

I'm not especially fit, so felt quite pleased with myself for walking up it! Probably not that hard going for people who hike a lot... there were people 20 years older than me who were jogging up it...

It's a pretty steep climb if you go straight up from the town and really will take your breath away even before you see the glorious views on top. If you go up via St Ann's Well you can always take a break at the café there (check opening hours). Without a stop, if you are reasonably fit you can... More

Dad and I had a fantastic day walking around and up to the top of Worcester Beacon. The initial steepness is soon rewarded with beautiful views. A delightful walk topped off with a picnic at the top!

First of all, I would like to point out that I am a local, and as such completely biased! These are great hills, I love coming up here, all times of year. It can be really impressive at night when there is a full moon on a clear night to illuminate your way. Great place to go running due to... More

Well worth the climb to get up here with unspoilt views in all directions of the surrounding countryside. Every time I go up the hills it reminds me of how brilliant they are and how lucky I am to live so close by

I don't know what there would be to dislike about the highest of the Malvern Hills? Depending what the weather is like, the view from here is always impressive. Its not a difficult climb to reach the top so its well worth more than one visit! If you are approaching from the town side you can always break up your... More

Well worth the climb for the views both on the way up and also from the beacon, plenty of reasonably priced car parking part way up

We often visit the Beacon, depending on weather conditions, as it can get very windy up there. There wasn't much of a view on my last visit, but it was fun being above the clouds. What is particularly fun is that you often get different conditions on the way down. I usually approach from the west, so access can be... More

I've visited Great Malvern many times but have never made it to the top of the Malvern hills so my mom & I set off determined to make it all the way to the Worcestershire Beacon.Started from Rose Bank Gardens up towards St Ann's Well pausing for breath to greet fellow walkers & dogs & admire our surroundings.Quite steep in...
