Desperately seeking things to do in and around Malvern

by broadviewwriter

Hello everyone... I could use some help. I'm getting the feeling that the place where I'm investing 10 days of my precious vacation time may be a backwater. My boyfriend assured me, when we made plans to go there, that besides being a great place to train for his cycling trip in the Alps, it was close to Stratford and all kinds of other interesting things. Now it looks like, without a car, Stratford is inaccessible as a day trip and so is just about everything else I was looking forward to doing. Any suggestions?

It's not exactly a backwater......and it is in a beautiful part of the UK........but public transport isn't particularly good anywhere (and distances on maps in the UK are very deceptive). There are certainly some trains (www.nationalrail.co.uk for timetables/fares)to Stratford/ Oxford/ Birmingham etc (though the Stratford one takes ages). There may be a local bus too, although I haven't found anything online; perhaps you should email the Malvern tourist Information Office and ask them to help? malvern.tic@malvernhills.gov.uk

There are some lovely places you will be able to get to: Worcester, for example, Ledbury, Shipston-on-Stour, maybe Hereford. And the walking is superb; there's a dedicated bus service (the Malvern Hopper) which will get you out and about nearby. So, all is not yet lost.....and perhaps you could persuade your boyfriend to hire a car (there'll be paces in Malvern) and spend at least one or two days going to the places you want to see?

Yes, I would second the advice above. It is a beautiful part of the world and there is lots of places you can travel to by train and bus from there.
