This circular walk starts in Great Malvern and explores the Malvern Hills that divide the beautiful countryside of Worcestershire and Herefordshire.
You’ll climb to the summit of Worcestershire Beacon, which at 425 metres is the highest point in a stunning chain of hills that run for 8 miles along the border between the two counties.
This is a landscape that’s inspired poets from John Drinkwater to W.H. Auden, surrounded by beautiful towns and villages including the Victorian spa town of Malvern and Tenbury Wells.
The Malvern Hills has been designated an Area Of Outstanding Natural Beauty and is home to a wide range of species and habitats, with woodlands, grasslands and scrub allowing birds, butterflies, bats and adders to thrive.
This route was voted 37th in a 2017 ITV poll to find Britain’s Favourite Walk.
TOG VERDICT: A lovely route that explores a majestic landscape of rolling wooded hills with dramatic views across the Severn Plain. Pure magic!
