“Stunning views and a great walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 27, 2013

From the British Camp car park we hike up to enjoy stunning panoramas of the surrounding countryside from atop the Herefordshire Beacon. There are numerous trails on the hill and around the ancient earthworks of the fort, allowing great opportunities to take in the splendours of the views of the surrounding countryside. A £3 car parking ticket is valid for the full day at numerous car parks around the Malvern Hills. A great day out.

“"British Camp"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 11, 2013

Wonderfully preserved Iron Age hill fort - more interesting than the higher Worcestershire Beacon. Not a difficult climb.

Excellent walk from the Golden Valley, Holly Bush, or Eastnor and Summerhill. By way of Hangmans or the Cave.
Good views.
Descend down to the Malvern Hills Hotel for some well earned refreshement before resuming your journey.

hard work getting to the top but oh boy it was worth it.wear sensible shoes and be prepared for showers which can make the slopes slippery.take a nice slow walk around the hills and enjoy the views and fresh air,and when you get back down to base have a drink in the Malvern hills hotel.

As we live in the Malvern area the Herefordshire Beacon is a regular destination for us and the family. Wonderful views and history never disappoint winter and summer.
