Malvern is a Beautiful Spa Town in along the Hereforshire and Worcestershire Borders. Stunning Views and Amazing Walks over hills that have been developing for 600 Million Years.
Your first, far-off view of 'The Malverns' tells you that you are approaching an area with a difference - unusual and intriguing. They are the centre piece of a wonderful region stretching from lowland, riverside Upton upon Severn to Malvern itself, and up the River Teme's winding course through northwest Worcestershire's hills to delightful Tenbury Wells.
Perhaps it was the pure water of the Malvern Hills springs that first attracted the iron-age builders of The British Camp (Herefordshire Beacon), and then, hundreds of years later, the founders of Malvern's two medieval priories. Certainly it was those waters that made Malvern a 19th Century spa, with the elegance to become a place of culture, attracting people like Sir Edward Elgar and Bernard Shaw. From the hills you will see some of England's grandest views, eastwards towards the Cotswolds, northwards to Shropshire and westward to the misty mountains of Wales.
Malvern is an unconventional shopping centre, thanks to its hillside setting. There are bookshops - both new and secondhand for you to browse in. There are antique dealers, as well as auctions from time to time, not to mention quality furniture, fashion and food. The Malvern lifestyle attracts artists and craftspeople, so you will find some delightful works on show and in shops and galleries. But the best way to appreciate what Malvern has to offer is to visit and explore - there is much to find.
