Area Guide for Malvern

The Malvern Hills lie in the English counties of Worcestershire and Herefordshire, where they stand majestically dominating the surrounding countryside.

Over the years Great Malvern, which clings to the steep eastern flank, has spread out into its sub districts which include Malvern Wells, Little Malvern, West Malvern, Barnards Green and Malvern Link.

The later two have excellent shopping precincts offering a range of independent shops and supermarkets and a diverse range of housing type from quaint 17th Century cottages to purpose build modern homes. 

Great Malvern offers excellent transportation networks for the modern commuter, being within easy reach of the M5 and M50 motorways.  Malvern has two railway stations approximately one mile apart at Great Malvern and Malvern Link.  They provide direct services to Worcester, Hereford, Birmingham, Oxford, Cheltenham, Gloucester, South West England and London Paddington.  Birmingham International Airport is approximately one hour by road via the M5/M42 motorways. 

There is a regular bus service connecting the main residential and commercial areas of the town.  Other routes serve the surrounding towns and villages.

During the 19th century Malvern grew rapidly partly owing to the popularity of its spring waters, resulting in its rapid development from a village to a busy town.

The town centre contains many fine examples of Regency, Victorian and Edwardian properties

Sir Edward Elgar, the British composer, lived much of his life around Malvern. The town has enjoyed a steady stream of celebrated visitors, including Charles Darwin and Florence Nightingale.  CS Lewis and JRR Tolkien, who found inspiration from the dramatic landscape, also frequented the town.

The Morgan Motor Company has been constructing cars in Malvern since 1910.  The classic, ash framed vehicles are exported all over the world from the factory in Malvern Link.

Malvern is also a centre for agricultural industry.  The Three Counties Showground has been the venue for the Three Counties Show, held each year in June, for over 50 years.

The Malvern Theatres are located in the Winter Gardens in the town centre.

Situated in the western lee of the hills is the popular village for Colwall which offers excellent facilities and retains much of its old world charm.  The village falls into the county of Herefordshire as well as the more rural villages and hamlets of Cradley, Bishops Frome, Mathon, Bosbury and Wellington Heath.

Suckley and Alfrick, are rural hamlets positioned to the North of the Malvern Hills and along with the neighbouring villages of Leigh, Leigh Sinton and Bransford offer delightful rural residences set within glorious undulating countryside. 

The historic market towns of Ledbury and Bromyard have bustling town centres rich in period character and charm coupled with the facilities that modern day living requires. 

Set on its riverside frontage Upton-Upon-Severn is a picturesque town which has become famous for its Jazz and blues festivals.
