Malverns

The Malvern Hills have been described as a mountain range in miniature; the eight mile ridge contains some of the oldest rocks in Britain and their craggy outline is reminiscent of the uplands further west into Wales. A walk in the Hills is strenuous enough that Mallory walked here in preparation for his ascent of Everest. Today you can enjoy over 3000 acres of open countryside climbing to the highest point at Worcestershire Beacon or relax whilst quietly rambling along the wooded slopes.

The Malvern Hills are a range of hills in the English counties of Worcestershire, Herefordshire and a small area of northern Gloucestershire, dominating 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.[1]

What Others Said...

Dear Alan I just wanted to write and formally thank you and your team for a wonderful weekend with the Gloucestershire WI at the Metropole Hotel. This was my first experience of the WI walking weekend. I really enjoyed the time away, the walks were great and the long walk on the Saturday was quite challenging in places! Everything was well organised and flowed well. The hotel was very comfortable, the food excellent and the customer service very good indeed. Having a spa on site to soak our aching muscles was an added bonus! Thank you again for an excellent time and I hope to be able to come along again next year. With very best wishes
