    Parked north quarry car park,which the machine took cash,rough gravel with no lines,took a photo of map in car park so didn't get lost.followed fairly steep and rugged path up to the beacon.well worth the effort as the views are spectacular.picked a busy day as there were three school trips at the summit,but plenty of room for everyone.when we return we will walk some of the others.

    The remains of an ancient Priory. There is both more and less than I expected. What remains of the medieval glass in the windows has been moved around a lot and is therefore difficult to find if you are looking for specific things as I was. The famous medieval tiles are now all stuck to a wall which certainly makes them easier to see. There were a number of men moving heavy pieces of wood but when one noticed I have my phone open with a specific piece of stained glass displayed, he came over to ask if he could help. It took all 4 of us to find where it was now and in between, they all volunteered information about the church which they clearly love.
    For anyone who like the stained glass by modern artist Thomas Denny - there is a large window of it. For those looking for the window donated by Richard Duke of Gloucester in the 15th C - much of it has been scattered through the church or lost.

    Cracking walk and views. Raining yesterday but sunny today. Worth climbing up in the morning when it is not too busy. Really loved the whole experience.

    We couldn't resist this little gem as we were staying just down the road at the Abbey hotel. It opens at 10am and is administered by volunteer wardens. We took advantage of the audio sets which you hold like a telephone to your ear. There are 13 different audio segments which mostly correlate with the rooms as currently configured, taking you through the geology of the region, the priory, the water spa treatments, world war II, etc. There are plenty of display items and information boards to supplement the audio. You can easily spend 1-2 hours here across the two floors. A visit to the adjacent priory afterwards is recommended.

    Fascinating to see anew a town I thought I knew well.
    The guide was excellent in identifying the buildings and telling the story of the development of the town through the ‘water cure’, commerce, cultural connections and natural surroundings.
    Not a wasted word and the time flew by - ending on the first strike of the Priory clock at noon.

    The path up the Herefordshire Beacon (which is neither wheelchair nor pushchair friendly) is, in some places, gentle and, in others, fairly steep but the views from it are magnificent. Herefordshire Beacon is also known as The British Fort as there are the remains of an Iron Age hillfort. The original earthworks of the fort are still visible as large grassy banks. This is one place which should not be missed if you are visiting the Malvern Hills. Parking is available in a public car park (£5.00 for the day)

    I went to see Cluedo 2 at Malvern theatres in May 2024. The staff were so kind and the food and drink options were very good. At first I found Cluedo 2 a little boring but after around 20 minutes it gets a lot better and entertaining. The actors were great and it lead to a hilarious performance. I would definitely recommend this to a friend

    A beautiful and interesting garden tucked away near the Malvern Hills. A hidden gem…but when you’ve been once you’ll want to visit again so we bought a season ticket and will be back to discover all the different snowdrops around the garden walk in Feb. National collection of Asters so Sept/Oct is a great time to see those.

    Good selection of Asters for sale and lots of succulents, some choice ones too.

    Friendly family atmosphere.

    Parking could limited at peak times,but we had no problems.

    Recommended.

    A lovely park with a Victorian bandstand and an impressive mansion. I’m sure in warmer weather this would be a lovely place to chill. Worth a walk through. I did this as part of the Malvern town guided walk on my phone. Not bad to get a feel of the place. Took about 2 hours but with stops in book shops and pretty shops.

    Super example of a Victorian railway station with beautifully painted flourishes, currently undergoing renovation.
    Obviously as an engineering nerd I had to have a look at the "worm tunnel" that used to lead from the station to the Imperial Hotel, you can see the top from the railway bridge and the blocked off entrance on the platform.
    I can hear you all shouting NERD, but I don't care!!

    Good quality snacks. Very convenient location. Can be a bit slow when busy or a group arrives. Overall well worth a visit.

    We did an escape room for my son’s birthday, it was the first one we had ever done. It was amazing… lots of laughs and big grins all round especially after we managed to escape with 2 minutes to spare. Dove was really helpful and explained everything so well throughout, and the helpful hints on the screen were much appreciated. We had a wonderful time.
