Why Live in Worcestershire

Gerard Smith from Andrew Grant's flagship department Country Homes describes why Worcestershire is such a desirable place to live…………


Worcestershire is the most peaceful county lying at the Heart of England, blessed with exceptional natural beauty.  It has a remarkable diversity making it the ideal region for family life and business, leisure and recreation.


The County lies at a meeting of the M5, M42 and M50 motorways providing rapid access to London and the Home Counties, to mainland Britain and overseas readily served by  Birmingham New Street Station and Birmingham Airport.


Worcestershire is the land of the Arts: of Elgar and Tolkien. Environmental attractions include the breathtaking Malvern Hills,   the sculpted Severn Teme Valley, the productive Vale of Evesham, the Northern Clent Hills and majestic farmland throughout the region. 


Worcestershire is renowned for its black and white half timbered chocolate box cottages; it is also blessed with a rich vein of Victorian and Georgian homes alongside impressive new developments.


Worcestershire has rural modesty and intimacy yet County agriculture employs the latest technological advancements. The County is at the forefront of British pastoral eco-benevolence.


The Capital is Worcester: The Faithful City, renowned for its ancient heritage and impressive position within English Civil War History. Old mixes with new: The brilliant library the Hive, the new Sports Arena, the County Cricket Ground, The Racecourse and Premier League Rugby Giants the Warriors rub shoulders with Worcester Porcelain and the famous Sauce!  At the heart of the City is the Cathedral visited by the Queen in her Jubilee year.


Every town of Worcestershire has its importance in forging national prosperity over the centuries. Kidderminster is famous for its carpet heritage, Bromsgrove for manufacturing, Droitwich for its Salt processing and Malvern for its Spring Water and Hills.


At the forefront for education is the rapidly expanding City University; the County also has fine schools, lying at the heart of their communities.  For business: there are globally esteemed market leaders and employers to include Worcester Bosch, Quinetic and Yamazaki Mazak. They provide magnets for Worcestershire as a commercial destination on a national stage. 


Prized villages enjoy access to commerce and retail opportunities and the motorway yet are set within tranquil countryside:  Ombersley, Belbroughton, Hagley, Chaddesley Corbett, Enville, Kinver and Clent to the north; Crowle, Tibberton, Inkberrow and Feckenham to the east; Kempsey, Upton, Tewkesbury to the south, and to the west in the beautiful Teme Valley: Abberley, Great Witley, Suckley and Alfrick. And countless more.


Regional centres such as Malvern, Bewdley, Evesham, Droitwich, Pershore, Kidderminster, Bromsgrove and Redditch provide outstanding facilities for work, rest and play.
