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

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

Again, the views from the Beacon are stupendous and it is well worth the climb. Take some water and a dog is a plus.

A long steady climb to the top,not difficult,the tarmac path is the easier route,but there are several small rocky steeper pathways from the wyche cutting at the bottom its about a 25 minute climb to the beacon ,worth the visit as you have a 360 degree view .

Our first trip here and we were surprised at the amount and variety of walkers and cyclists of a wide age range making it up here, on a sunny February day. It was a great day out.
