Explore Malvern

Discover everything Malvern has to offer with our short guide of local sights and events

Much more than a spa

Although our spa provides everything you could possibly need for the perfect getaway, we are still particularly fond of our surroundings and encourage our guests to explore the area. The beautiful Malvern Hills surround the town and provide the perfect setting for a relaxing countryside walk, no matter what the weather. If you are wanting to explore the area, take a look at our highlights.

  • The Malvern Hills

    The Malvern Hills

    The Malvern Hills run north to south for about 8 miles (15km) with spectacular views of Wales, The Severn Valley and the distant Cotswolds. Walking highlights include The British Camp, an Iron Age hill fort.

  • The Malvern Water

    The Malvern Water

    Malvern water has always made a bit of a splash - The Queen would drink nothing else on royal tours and the popularity of the town increased due to the craze of spa water cures in the mid 19th century. The tradition has been updated at The Malvern, the first new spa in Malvern since 1910, which offers a water spa cure day using water drawn from one of the last remaining bore holes.

  • The Theatre of Small Convenience

    The Theatre of Small Convenience

    Listed as the smallest theatre in Britain by The Guinness Book of Records, this eccentric theatre is run by Dennis Neale, opens on a request basis and occupies a former Victorian gentlemen’s lavatory in Great Malvern.

  • Hampton Court Castle

    Hampton Court Castle

    No, not Hampton Court Palace. Our Hampton Court is a 15th century estate. Visit for a highly entertaining (and surprising) tour and, above all, for the truly impressive gardens.

  • Eastnor Castle

    Eastnor Castle

    Eastnor looks like a proper castle and has everything from turrets to medieval armour. Grounds and arboretum are a delight and there are regular special events. The Land Rover Experience is based in the grounds.

  • Morgan Factory Tour

    Morgan Factory Tour

    Morgan Factory Tours are a rousing reminder of the days when craftsmen made cars by hand, with hammers and things. Pre-booking essential, tours run mid-week.

  • Malvern Cafes and Shops

    Malvern Cafes and Shops

    If you sometimes feel that Britain’s high streets are merging into a single blur of phone shops and generic clothing stores, Malvern might just be the antidote. We love the string of antique shops along Worcester Road, the Malvern Bookshop's old school values, and Josephine’s Little Tart Shop treats.

  • Afternoon Tea at Colwall Park

    Afternoon Tea at Colwall Park

    Afternoon tea done properly - Twining’s Tea, home baking and attention to detail, all available in the garden too.

  • Chilli Festival

    Chilli Festival

    Annual Eastnor Castle event in May. Tastings, plants… and a fiercely fought chilli eating competition.

  • Malvern Theatres

    Home of the famous Malvern Festivals, this is a great area of the country to experience new, exciting, and traditional theatre pieces. Artistic brilliance combines with architectural excellence to form an incredible backdrop for a hugely diverse selection of plays, music, comedy, dance, and films.
