The Malverns is a collective name for Great Malvern, Malvern Link, Little Malvern, Malvern Wells, West Malvern and Barnards Green.
A spa town famous for its natural mineral water springs, you can still fill your own bottles free of charge from roadside taps.
On the May Day weekend each year the wells in the area are traditionally dressed in thanks for the precious resource. Malvern sits in an area of Outstanding Natural Beauty with stunning views from the hills, local restaurants and tea shops like The Cottage In The Woods and The Kettle Sings are a big draw for their glorious outlook.
The area has a reputation for its strong arts culture and quirky charm - it was once home to officially the smallest theatre in the world which seated an audience of 12 in a former Victorian public toilet. Another, still open, is in a converted garage.
There's the beautiful landscape and glorious outdoor life, with an independent café and foodie culture. There's also a Waitrose!
The Three Counties Showground hosts outdoor events throughout the year including the RHS Spring and Autumn shows; as the home of composer Edward Elgar the town prides itself on a range of musical, arts and dramatic productions.
