Secret Spaces in The Malvern Hills
The Malvern Hills
The Malvern Hills are an iconic landscape with unique cultural heritage, wildlife and geology. The Malvern Hills Trust owns and cares for the Malvern Hills and Commons and keeps them open for the hundreds of thousands of visitors who come each year. A range of hills in the English counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and a small area of northern Gloucestershire, dominate the surrounding countryside and the towns and villages of the district of Malvern. The highest summit of the hills affords a panorama of the Severn Valley with the hills of Herefordshire and the Welsh mountains, parts of thirteen counties, the Bristol Channel, and the cathedrals of Worcester, Gloucester and Hereford.
They are known for their spring water – initially made famous by the region’s many holy wells, and later through the development of the 19th-century spa town of Great Malvern, a process which culminated in the production of the modern bottled drinking water.
The Malvern Hills are an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty and are a uniquely beautiful place offering more than just landscape, with beautiful towns and thriving villages to explore. The festivals, arts and wide choice of attractions will give you reasons to visit throughout the year.
The Malverns in Worcestershire cover a large area including the victorian spa town of Malvern itself at the foot of the Malvern Hills, Tenbury Wells in the beautiful English countryside of the Teme Valley, and historic riverside town of Upton upon Severn.
