The Malvern Hills are 7 to 8 miles of oasis. Having lived almost my entire life in Malvern I used to take them for granted, that was until I moved for three years to Kingswood near Bristol. Several times a year I returned always by train to the family home. Apart from the Cotswold foothills the Gloucester/Worcester terrain is basically... More

Yes, but not the best of Malvern, being accessible by a wide tarmac track which makes it over-run, especially at weekends. There is talk of a funicular to the summit where a cafe will be established. God forbid. Best in the Winter when there is a brisk West wind which takes your breath away and nearly knocks you over.

There are stunning views in all directions. You can see for miles and miles and miles. Well worth the climb.

Climb to the summit through the easy paths and you will be rewarded by views in all directions, northwards to Warwickshire and Worcestershire, south towwards the Bristol Channel and Gloucestershire, east to the Cotswolds with the escarpment of Cleeve Hill, and West to Herefordshire, the Marches and Wales, with the Brecon Becons and Offas dike in the distance. It feels... More

Walked directly up from the town. Pretty steep at first but gradually got easier. Very friendly people all over. Great views from the top although we were there on a cloudy day but a rewarding couple of hours walking to the Beacon and the North Hill

It was wonderful to be able to reach the very top (all but a few feet!) of The Beacon and enjoy the amazing 360 degree views. We hired a Tramper all-terrain wheelchair from the GeoCentre for my husband who normally uses a manual wheelchair - which would be impossible on the steep paths to the top. I didn't imagine we...

There are many wonderful walks in the beautiful Worcestershire countryside and this is absolutely one of the best. The walk up the Beacon affords fantastic views both across the flat Severn plain to the Cotswolds and to the west across Herefordshire's wooded hills and valleys to the distant Welsh mountains. I absolutely love it at all times of year. If... More

Well worth the effort to walk up the Worcestershire Beacon, it's not half as difficult as it looks, and you can be at the top enjoying magnificent views across the surrounding countryside over to the Cotswolds, in not much more than half an hour!
