Walking amongst the Malverns is one of those pleasures you smile at whenever you remember it. Worcestershire beacon is the high point but there are enough opportunities across the range to entice the least energetic. Once at a height or especially on a ridge, the lack of vegetation offers a truly stunning view across the area.

Quite a steep climb up to the top, however the spot is accessible via road to a nearer spot. But the view from the top is simply breathtaking & worth the effort. If you have time its a good hike over the weekend...

Walked up to the Beacon from Great Malvern this morning just because I can. I've done this walk loads of times and I never grow tired of the views. I'm so lucky to have a beautiful place like this on my doorstep. If you want the easy route walk up from the Wyche Cutting. Either way you will get stunning... More

We found the climb quite hard as not used to hills! We took it steady with plenty of stops and were so pleased to make it to the Beacon!

This is not a climb for anyone without a good heart, lungs and legs. It's a great cardio workout (but very do-able, you don't have to be an elite athlete or anything), and the view from the top is worth every step. (Savour the flora and the views along the trail on the way up, too.)

Well worth the views and the windy wet weather didn't put us off. Plenty of cyclist and walkers like us out and about. We did the round trip from The Amazing View Bed and Breakfast and stopped of at St Annes Well too.

A fantastic walk from either end of the Malvern Hills towards the Worcestershire Beacon, my personal favorite is a the route from British Camp car park (£3.00 parking) to the Wyche Cutting (2.5 miles), calling into the Malvern Hill Goe Center and Cafe then recharged the final mile to the Worcester Beacon and some of the most spectacular views from...

Steep climb. Very steep climb (especially if you are unfit as I am). Handy benches dotted everywhere. Good marked paths. Amazing views. Well worth the walk.

Climbing to the top of The Beacon is a must. The are various way of getting to the summit like straight up Happy Valley past Saint Annes Well, or drive to the Wyche Cutting and take the easier route. Don´t forget your camera and taking warm clothes is a must.

Highest spot in Worcestershire. Worth the effort!. Easy access from the centre of Malvern up into the hills.
